What is and who are the Utrecht Bioinformatics Community?
Utrecht houses bioinformatics expertise at a world class level for widely different biological and data domains. We aim to combine this expertise, create novel expertise and new bioinformatic approaches to perform world class integrative bioinformatics and to enable scientific breakthroughs in a wide variety of relevant life sciences. Specifically, we aim to unify the separate bioinformatic teams into the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center (UBC) to create an integrative bioinformatics community at the Utrecht Science Park to strengthen our future research.
- The Utrecht Bioinformatics Center cooperates in education at the bachelor and master level across the different life science faculties.
- Groups from the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center participate in the campus-wide High Performance Compute (HPC) facility. The HPC facility is coordinated by one of the executive committee members of the UBC.
- We have seminar series on the different expertise topics, user meetings for the HPC and general bioinformatics seminar and guest speakers.
