Rare Disease Informatics Scientific Interest Group
The goal of the Rare Disease Informatics (RDI) scientific interest group (SIG) is to engage investigators and analysts who are interested in applying computational techniques for biomedical data analysis to support rare disease research. Potentially, collaboration and knowledge-sharing will be promoted among biomedical informaticians and rare disease experts across the NIH.
The RDI SIG is a trans-institute group whose investigators apply informatics approach to curate, harmonize, standardize, and analyze biomedical data obtained from a variety of resources (i.e., gene sequences, bioassays, electronic health records and other forms of real-world data, scientific publications) for clinical, biological, and public health research applications. The group meets to discuss the challenges/emerging technology of integrating computational techniques into analysis workflows and new developments in rare disease informatics applications. The group meets monthly to discuss recent journal articles, relevant projects, and initiating collaborations. Guest speakers will be invited periodically.
