Bioinformatics

Bioinformatics research is about developing and applying algorithms and computer programs to solve problems in biology and biomedicine. Most of the research in our bioinformatics group is carried out in close collaboration with biologists, to ensure that our competence in informatics becomes useful in practical applications.
