Bioinformatics Platform

Driven by the technological development in DNA and RNA sequencing, single cell technologies, as well as high-throughput screenings, increasingly complex datasets are generated at a fast pace within life/biomedical sciences. In order to analyse these datasets, researchers in these fields are facing growing demands for computational expertise.

The goal of the bioinformatics platform is to provide highly-specialised bioinformatics support in the areas of genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, high-throughput screen deconvolution and systems biology. Furthermore, it serves as a knowledge base that connects the bioinformatics know-how already present in individual research groups of MWLC in Stockholm and Hong Kong. The core of the platform is presently formed by one computational biologist and two bioinformaticians who are organising a network between the two nodes and closely collaborating with the researchers of the MWLC.
