The Centre for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CBB) is a virtual centre located at the Karolinska Institutet’s (KI's) Campus Flemingsberg. The centre offers expertise and scientific networking opportunities to the pre-clinical and clinical research environment. Activities of the centre include mentoring for early-stage researchers (PhD students and postdocs), support for project planning and grant writing, as well as seminars and discussion groups around bioinformatics and biostatistics methods and their application to biomedical data.

History

The Centre for Bioinformatics and Biostatistics (CBB) is in the startup phase since February 2021.

Information meeting

CBB had a first information meeting on April 29th, 2021. A zoom recording from the meeting, as well as the presentation, can be found below.

Yitian Zhou

PhD, bioinformatician

My research focus is pharmacogenomic, i.e. study the impact of genetic variants on drug response. I work with variants data (particularly SNP data) a lot and have experience using bioinformatic tools to generate variant annotations, such as functional consequences, population-specific frequencies etc.

Financial support

CBB receives financial support from CIMED Infrastructure funding and from Karolinska Institutet.
