If I get this award, what will the CBC staff do for me, and how is it different from someone who does not have an award?

Based on your data analysis requirements, the CBC staff will work with you and your lab to develop appropriate pipelines/software and provide training so the group can eventually conduct these kinds of analyses independently. Additionally, the staff will help troubleshoot related issues arising from both computational and software related issues. The awardees will also have priority access to CBC staff with regards to consulting services such as feedback on experimental design and insights on interpretability of analysis. In addition, they will have access to the shared computational infrastructure dedicated within the CBC for the awardees.
