Network with over a million human genomes becomes available for research Nov. 18, 2022 3:23 PM
In the long term, this could have a major impact on personalized medicine.
Bacterial genes in the faeces can reveal early colorectal cancer Nov. 18, 2022 1:12 PM
Scientists are now analysing all the genes in the intestinal content of thousands of people. The aim is to reveal the early phase of colorectal cancer by looking at the microbiota in the bowel.
New group leader at the Centre for Bioinformatics May 20, 2022 9:18 AM
The centre for Bioinformatics is delighted to announce that Dr. Trine Rounge has started as a new group leader at the centre from May 2022. Rounge group aims to unravel the molecular mechanisms that can detect and explain cancer progression at an early stage.
MoDLE: High-performance stochastic modeling of DNA loop extrusion interactions Apr. 28, 2022 9:21 PM
"MoDLE is a computational tool for fast, stochastic modeling of molecular contacts from DNA loop extrusion capable of simulating realistic contact patterns genome wide in a few minutes. MoDLE accurately simulates contact maps in concordance with existing molecular dynamics approaches and with Micro-C data, and does so orders of magnitude faster than existing approaches. MoDLE's speed opens up for exploratory and predictive modeling of 3D genome structure in a wide range of settings", says Jonas Paulsen, professor at the Department of Biosciences.

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.
