Our main goal is to enhance the productivity of our research projects by providing support for all stages of research, including but limited to high-quality and timely biostatistics, data sciences, bioinformatics, and Omics support. DATAOmics includes two components: (1) Biostatistics and Data Science and (2) Bioinformatics and Omics Sciences. We also aim to increase cancer research capacity in design and statistical analyses in biostatistics, data sciences, bioinformatics, and Omics through educational activities for our researchers and participants. Also, to develop and apply innovative biostatistics and bioinformatics methodologies to the cancer research projects initiated by our researchers. 

We offer services such as sample size estimation and data analysis support. Also, we coordinate and teach a course on Data Analysis in Cancer Research (INTD 5064/INTD 8065) for graduate and undergraduate students.
