The Informatics team has two broad goals. The first is to provide support to the science sponsored by the Center through visitors, resident scientists, and working groups. Activities towards this goal range from providing basic electronic collaboration tools to the development and integration of databases, analytical tools and other computational technologies to advance their scientific aims. See our software downloads and database links for results from these activities.

The second goal is to help build cyberinfrastructure that will enable evolutionary biologists to fully exploit the information-rich discipline that biology has become. This latter goal requires leveraging the energies and talents of the open source programming community to build extensible and interoperable software components for evolutionary analyses, and training the evolutionary biology community to fully realize the potential of these tools.
