Abstract

Pathology informatics involves management and analysis of large complex data sets derived from various tests performed in clinical and anatomic pathology laboratories, annotated biorepositories, image analysis, telepathology, and large scale experiments, including gene expression analysis, proteomics, and tissue array studies. It facilitates intelligent use of computing technologies to improve patient care and understand the natural history of disease. Herein, we describe the various bioinformatics tools used to support translational research at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
