Mission

The bioinformatics core offers bioinformatics support for all members of
the IRC, including:

  • Assistance in the application of bioinformatics tools
  • The operation of a help-desk
  • The organisation of training sessions for common applications
  • The provision of an environment enabling post-docs and graduate students to pursue specific bioinformatics research

Research

The general theme of the BioIT research is prediction of regulation of gene-expression and involves projects on promoter analysis, TFBS predictions, classification of co-regulated genes on the basis of their promoter characteristics and phylogenetic conservation of gene regulatory elements.
