BIDS is a central hub of data-intensive research, open source software, and data science training programs at UC Berkeley.
- Research: BIDS supports faculty, staff, postdoctoral fellows, and graduate/undergraduate research in a variety of fields in the life, health, social, and physical sciences, the humanities, and in computer science, statistics, and applied mathematics.
- Software: BIDS contributes to a number of open source, open science, and open data resource communities in support of academic research.
- Training: BIDS training programs reflect our commitment to augment degree programs and provide valuable, accessible resources that expand collaboration opportunities for the campus community.
