The Biostatistics Core provides comprehensive data processing and analysis services for CENIC. This includes assistance and direction in experimental design, quality control, data collection, integration management and reporting, and statistical data analysis. These services are provided to investigators and leaders for the main projects, as well as to the Administrative and Biomarker Cores if necessary.
