The Integrative Cancer Research Workspace is producing modular and interoperable tools and interfaces that provide for integration between biomedical informatics applications and data. This will ultimately enable translational and integrative research by providing for the integration of clinical and basic research data. The Workspace is developing a software-engineered, well-documented and validated biomedical informatics toolset for use throughout the research community.
Open Development and Community Projects Speaker Series
ICR WS Teleconference Speakers
The Integrative Cancer Research (ICR) Workspace is hosting a series of speakers on various open development and community driven projects.
