Software Development

Research in biostatistics produces frequently produces new methods for analyzing complex data.  In developing these methods, researchers in biostatistics often concurrently develop software to apply these new methods.  Members of the department of bioinformatics and biostatistics have been active in developing software that implements the methods they have developed.  Below is a brief list of some of the software programs developed by our faculty, staff, and students.
