Bioinformatics Unit

  • The Bioinformatics Facility at Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência provides a broad range of support in data analysis and computational biology for all research groups in IGC. We have established a system to interact actively with internal and external laboratories, ranging from experimental design and data processing to statistics and data visualization. In addition, we have also initiated research projects on evolutionary biology of mammalian genomes and developing a genome assembly algorithm for highly divergent regions of the mammalian genome. We have a wide range of external collaborations with BioData.pt, ELIXIR European, ITQB, IMM, EMBL-EBI and multiple universities all over the world.

    You can also browse through the resources we provide, such as the local Galaxy server, and learn about our outreach activities, most notably the Bioinformatics at School project.
