Informatics infrastructure is about providing services to the University community to meet their informatics needs. The University of Minnesota has many places where these needs can be met. The role of UMII is to bring the services together in a way that makes it easy to find them and to identify ways to meet the "latent needs" to accelerate discovery.
UMII Services provide basic informatics analysis. The Minnesota Supercomputing Institute (MSI) provides a large collection of resources to the University informatics community, including computational platforms, high performance storage, and informatics software. All health related enterprise systems are managed by the Academic Health Center Information Services, (AHC-IS), the Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), or by units or research groups within the Academic Health Center (AHC). The University of Minnesota Libraries offers Digital Library Services that include digital collections an digital preservation. The Office of Information Technology provides a wide range of robust and innovative IT Services for Researchers.
Infrastructure needs are across the data life cycle that is shown below in a high-level schematic. Implementations of pipelines, however, differ among fields and increase in complexity when data require specific protection, such as PHI.
The University of Minnesota offers a number of informatics and statistical consulting services
The University of Minnesota Libraries aid with the data management plan that is required by funding agencies.
