Supporting innovation, accelerating research

The UC Davis DataLab facilitates the application of Data Science and Informatics methods and best practices to enhance research and learning in all domains across the University.  Working across the entirety of the research data pipeline, DataLab provides support and training from method and algorithm development to analysis and visualization of translational, high-impact data-driven research.

DataLab emerged from the Provost’s Data Science Initiative (DSI)  as a response to help meet the University’s research and training needs in this area.  DataLab is administered in the UC Davis Library.
