Core Description

The mission of Seattle Children's High-Throughput Data Analysis Core (HAC) is to enable biomedical discoveries by translating data into knowledge.

We accelerate and optimize research through intuitive, reliable and powerful analysis. It takes more than just a core service to achieve research advances, which is why our philosophy is to work as your collaborator in the discovery process.

We are a not-for-profit research core - our services are available at cost to the research community. We provide the research community with analysis and integration expertise (statistics, bioinformatics, software, large datasets and databases) as well as data acquisition (proteomics) services. We are located in downtown Seattle and are tele-enabled for remote collaborations. Our services are available for individual project sections and phases or for the full cycle of your project including funding applications. The core is led by Eugene Kolker, PhD.

Services and Expertise

HAC services are available at cost to the research community. Contact us for pricing information.

Custom data analysis and integration of large and small OMICS (genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, microarrays, etc.) datasets collected anywhere

  • Statistical services
  • Software development and engineering
  • Informatics (bioinformatics, health informatics)
  • Database development and management

HAC Philosophy

We believe that the key to answering critical research questions lies in the data generated by our collaborators. We develop innovative methods to unlock this knowledge, use them to benefit you, and share them with the community through publications and online tools.

We support data democratization: straightforward, equal and sustainable access to data, computing and analysis resources will enable better research. The free and open exchange of ideas is essential to scientific progress - the Data-Enabled Life Sciences Alliance is one example of how researchers can support one another with the collaborative use of data.

We are passionate about collaboration! The exciting trans-disciplinary work we do with our collaborators fuels our mutual success. We give our collaborators the tools they need to discover cures and publish their research.
