Bioinformatics Laboratory
Medical Bioinformatics and e-Bioscience

Bioinformatics Laboratory
The Bioinformatics Laboratory was initiated in 1997 to support biomedical research in the Academic Medical Center (AMC, Amsterdam). The laboratory is part of the department of Clinical Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Bioinformatics and aims to further stimulate and strengthen bioinformatics and e-bioscience research, support and education. Projects are defined and carried out in tight collaborations with (AMC) life sciences, clinical and medical informatics groups. The group members represent a broad range of (bio)informatics, biostatistics and e-bioscience expertise.

The Bioinformatics Laboratory is engaged in different types of research and support projects The main research efforts comprise (a) sequence analysis, (b) data-driven systems biology and (c) comparative genomics. The Bioinformatics Laboratory was one of the initiators of the AMC BioLims project to streamline genomics data-management and to link genomics to clinical data. Furthermore, the group has also been involved in the definition and implementation of the integration architecture that integrates hospital and genomics databases to enable clinical genomics projects. To facilitate and enable distributed and multi-disciplinary collaborations the Bioinformatics Laboratory aims to implement the e-bioscience paradigm as part of selected research support projects.

The University of Amsterdam network
The Bioinformatics Laboratory has strong links to other (bio)informatics and computational life sciences groups at the University of Amsterdam. In particular we have set up collaborations with Biosystems Data Analysis and the Integrative Bioinformatics Unit of the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences (SILS), the Section Computational Science of the Informatics Institute and the Virtual Laboratory for e-science consortium. In a joint effort with these groups research, support and education activities are implemented to further strengthen bioinformatics and life sciences research.
