Our StoryThere is a significant opportunity for the region to organize the bioinformatics expertise and infrastructure in support of human and animal health research.
There is an abundance of competitive bioinformatics assets within BioNexus KC’s Stakeholder organizations and surrounding region to address a wide range of research questions across multiple disciplines.
While regional assets are comparable qualitatively to those of the benchmark institutes, such as the Broad Institute and University of Washington, the assets are located in institutions scattered across a 250 mile geography between Manhattan, KS and Columbia, MO.
This website represents an information clearinghouse regarding bioinformatics capabilities and expertise to leverage assets supporting collaborative research. BioNexus KC directed a study regarding bioinformatics resources found in the Kansas City region that was funded by the Ewing Kauffman Foundation.
Our AssetsComputational capacity and people capable of manipulating, analyzing, and visualizing large data sets are critical needs for bioinformatics research.
