Data Analytics Management & Engineering Unit

Develops platforms, pipelines and tools for big-data analyticsAbout DAMEU

The Data Analytics Management & Engineering Unit (DAMEU) empowers data-science approaches throughout the entire scientific and translational research process. The DAMEU unit is further structured into two main components, the Bioinformatics Team and the Data Engineering Team. The Bioinformatics team members focus on bioinformatics pipeline engineering, genomics data processing, downstream analysis, data integration and interpretation. The Data Engineering team members are responsible for designing, building, and operating software platforms and infrastructure for management, distribution, and scalable analysis of data.
