Computational biology

Technology Platform (BC) - Integrates the most advanced computational techniques, as bioinformatics, computational modelling, computational biochemistry and genomics, and systems biology.

The advent of –omics technologies is changing biology and life sciences from descriptive disciplines into data-intensive sciences. Within the Research and Innovation Centre (CRI), the Computational Biology Unit is the reference for the analysis and statistical modeling of data, with a particular emphasis on “omic” technologies. The Unit conjugates original methodological research with the collaboration with the other groups of CRI in a variety of projects. The main research areas are: genomics, in particular of plants and bacteria, metagenomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, statistical modeling and data integration. In addition, the Computational Biology Unit manages the High Performance Computing infrastructure of CRI and guarantees the storage and traceability of data generated by high throughput technologies.
