The NINDS DIR Bioinformatics Section is located in Building 10 (3B01) and organized under the NINDS DIR IT program directed by Dr. Yang Fann. The Section consists of both Bioinformatics Scientist staff and Bioinformatics Programmer staff. The Section mission is to collaboratively assist NINDS research staff with Bioinformatics-related projects as needed.

Types of Bioinformatics-related projects the Section’s Scientist staff can assist with includes:

  • Experiment design
  • Microarray Analysis (one-color, two-color)
  • Next Generation Sequence Analysis (e.g., bulk RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq, DNA-Seq, scRNA-Seq, TCR-Seq)
  • Protein Analysis (structure prediction, mass spectrometry-based analysis)
  • RNA Analysis (structure prediction, function classification, target prediction)
  • Sequence Analysis (e.g., pair-wise, multiple-alignment, phylogenetics, gene prediction, comparative genomics)
  • Ad-hoc Statistical Analysis (Descriptive, Correlation-based, Comparison Testing, Classification Modeling)

Types of Bioinformatics-related projects the Section’s Programmer staff can assist with includes:

  • Application design, development, & maintenance
  • Database design, development, & maintenance
  • Dashboard design, development, & maintenance
  • Systems design, development, & maintenance

In addition to providing both Bioinformatics Scientist and Bioinformatics Programmer assistance to NINDS research staff, the NINDS DIR Section staff also serves as mentors in the NIH Summer Internship Program each year.
