GROUP: Data Management and Genomics IT

iCHIP, a web based data integration center for high throughput experiments at the DKFZ, addresses the sustainable provision of the generated resources as molecular and imaging data for our national and international partners as crucial demands in basic and translational research.


The rapid development of high-throughput experimental techniques demands sophisticated data handling. Within the last decade the requirement on service structures has increased substantially in expenses and complexity. We provide data management for national and international collaborations in the field of basic and translational cancer research as well as for DKFZ internal needs.

Some major collaborations are effecting our activities, e.g. the three German projects within the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), DEEP (Deutsches Epigenom Programm), the German contribution to the International Epidemiological Consortium (IHEC), the Heidelberger Center for Personalized Oncology (DKFZ-HIPO) and the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK).
