National Biomedical Informatics Center

Biomedical Informatics Department within Sidra Medicine Research has acquired a sophisticated, High-Performance Computing (HPC) system specifically for Genomic and Biomedical Research applications. The Department has also developed unique expertise in Bioinformatics and Biostatistics in order to analyze big data arising from genomics and other omics projects. This has facilitated not only clinically relevant research in Sidra, but also nationally important large-scale programs such as the Qatar Genome Program. Recognizing the pivotal role that Sidra Medicine Biomedical Informatics plays in Qatar, it has been established as a “National Resource”.
