Utrecht Bioinformatics Center

The Utrecht Bioinformatics Center performs Life Science research using big data analysis on DNA, genes, proteins and cells. By integrating data from various sources, we develop innovative methods that address important problems in the whole complexity of the Life Sciences, such as cancer genomics, molecular evolution or plant-microbe interactions. The UBC fosters and promotes the bioinformatics community at the Utrecht Science Park.

Community

Our community brings together a large number of internationally leading research groups with a strong bioinformatics component within Utrecht University, University Medical Center Utrecht, Hubrecht Institute and Princess Máxima Center for Pediatric Oncology. We share expertise and discuss scientific ideas to realise projects ranging from understanding the worldwide difference in the human genome to discovering new viruses.

Education

The UBC coordinates bioinformatics education activities at Utrecht Science Park including internships, summer schools, as well as bachelor, master and PhD courses. Courses range from general introductory courses to highly specialized courses on evolutionary bioinformatics or advanced data integration.

Infrastructure

We coordinate and promote essential infrastructure needed for cutting-edge bioinformatics research, for example a High Performance Computing (HPC) facility. Besides coordinating a HPC facility, we also actively investigate new possibilities and coordinating activities aimed at providing better storage and network infrastructure.
