DNA illustration

Our research

We constitute the hub of bioinformatics and computational biology. Our competence spans from precision medicine through all aspects of genomics, regardless of species and populations, through to protein structure.

Collaborations

ELIXIR Norway

ELIXIR Norway is the Norwegian national node of ELIXIR, the pan-European infrastructure for biological information, supporting life science research and its translation to medicine, environment, the bioindustries and society. This organization is a virtual organization where the Center of Bioinformatics hosts the regional Oslo node. It participates to the national help-desk user support, and in that activity also collaborates and coordinates closely with the Helse Sør-Øst-funded Bioinformatics Core facility.
