Welcome to the Interfaculty Bioinformatics Unit | IBU.

We specialize in next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies and genomics data science. We work closely with researchers from study design and conceptualisation to advanced data analysis.

We regularly contribute to large-scale interdisciplinary research projects and develop data processing pipelines and tools for data exploration and visualisation. We are equipped with state-of-the-art computational infrastructure and have access to a comprehensive software repository.

We train the next generation of bioinformaticians through our own research projects, specific courses and our Master program in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology.
