At the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics group, we host the scientific high performance computing unit, dedicated to support IBIS researchers with their computational analysis needs. We focus on computational Analysis services and Software Tools development, provide a modern Scientific Computing infrastructure, and periodically organize Training courses. Over the last decade Bioinformatics has evolved into a complex multidisciplinary field that integrates developments in information and computer technology as applied to Biotechnology and Biological Sciences. In this context, the scientific high performance computing unitat the IBIS responds to specific requirements related to experimental data analysis, management, integration, visualisation, mining, knowledge extraction, especially in relation to high throughput (HT) methodologies, using computer software and hardware tools.
The nature and volume of biological databases, along with the computational methods that model complex biological systems, all require processing power that cannot be achieved using desktop workstations alone.
Specialised training is paramount in improving access to complex, novel statistical and computational methods. We periodically organise courses, covering both technical and practical topics such as parallel computing, functional Analysis in experiments among others.
We explore ways to answer your questions using bioinformatics methods and tools. We specialize in array platforms, but other analytical platforms and even whole genomic analysis are also performed.
