Academic & Research Programming Services

Academic Research Programming Services provides support for research and education projects. Programmers develop software applications and websites to enhance teaching and learning on campus. The service also offers recharge programming to UC Davis Health.


The Bioinformatics Core provides expertise and infrastructure for the acquisition, curation, analysis, and distribution of large complex biological datasets, with an emphasis on sequence data. Also, we can help you design, install, and maintain your lab’s high performance computing infrastructure.

Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design

This Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Research Design program strengthens research plans through study design, analysis, and consultation. Expertise is available to assist in the development of protocols, statistical plans, data safety monitoring plans, data analysis, and contribute to the statistical sections of grant applications, abstracts, and manuscripts.

Clinical Trials Management System

Velos eResearch is an integrated software system designed to assist Investigators in managing their clinical research trials/studies. The software links to the UC Davis Health's Epic Electronic Medical Record System to provide improved information and integration for clinical research projects.

Cold Room

The Computational Research Service at the College of Letters and Sciences provides support for the use of restricted access, confidential data in social science research. It has a cold room available on a first come, first served basis, for research involving confidential data.

Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics

The Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics (CIG) develops and disseminates community-accessible software for the geodynamics research community. CIG software supports a variety of geodynamic research from mantle and core dynamics, to crustal and earthquake dynamics, to magma migration and seismology. CIG is a community-driven organization that is committed to developing and maintaining the geodynamics community through community participation across this research spectrum. Software is available for download from the website.

Computational Research Service

The Computational Research Service provides a variety of shared computing environments in support of quantitative social science research in the College of Letters and Science.  For large longer-term projects, for example where datasets exceed the available storage capacity, or methods exceed the computation capabilities of desktop systems, or where project datasets must be accessible to multiple users, the CRS maintains a central research UNIX server.

Data Science Services

The DataLab facilitates the application of Data Science and Informatics methods and best practices to enhance research and learning in all domains across the University. It assists with the following:

Database Schema Development

The UC Davis Library can consult and assist with database schema development for relational databases (PostgreSQL), data standardization and validation, and ingest from spreadsheets. Some query design support is available.
