Biocomputing Platform

The Biocomputing Platform provides data management, information service support, and laboratory management support to promote organization, sharing, and dissemination of research data and materials.

Daily operations are supported by two in-house developed intranet-based systems: LabManager® and MIPortal®. LabManager® provides an important administrative functionality essential to the smooth running of the Center, including access to funding information, a people database for access rights, historical data for instruments, a calendar for scheduling lectures and seminars, publications tracking, etc. MIPortal® is a reliable, web-based system that provides flexible and secure access to complex data generated by more than 20 different modalities, including raw and post-processed data as well as analysis results.

We operate a heterogeneous computing environment that supports Windows, Linux and Mac OS X clients.

In 2010 we have established a Research Informatics Core (RIC) with the objective to provide web- and software application development as well as hosting services.
