Library Support for Biomedical Research in the Omics Era: 2014- 2015 Report
Report (2015)
  • Rolando Garcia-Milian, Yale University

The decreased cost of high-throughput technologies has enabled its use as the main research methods to study biological processes and disorders. In order to understand the relevance of the data generated by these methods, the researcher needs mining and integrating the enormous amount of biomedical information and knowledge contained in the text of the scientific literature and biomedical databases. Accordingly, the ability to access and examine molecular data should not be restricted to bioinformaticians or those with exceptional computer skills. In May 2014, the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library began to provide end-user bioinformatics support to the biomedical researchers of the Yale School of Medicine. This report summarizes the results of the first year (from June 2014 to June 2015) of development of a program that provides support on three main fronts: trainings, resources and consultations.
