Our goal is to further strengthen and promote bioinformatics research within the Utrecht Life Sciences and Sustainability domains. Utrecht Bioinformatics Center (UBC) combines data from various sources and research methods to gain a better insight in the various cellular processes.

By sharing knowledge and methods our approach allows for the integration of information at the level of DNA, genes, proteins and metabolites, thus yielding a comprehensive picture.

Varied expertise

The UBC community brings together Utrecht-based research groups each with a varied area of bioinformatics expertise, providing education for our life scientist of the future. By coordinating the High Performance Compute facility UBC provides access to a solid facility to compute the increased amount of data generated, for eighteen different research groups from UMC Utrecht, Utrecht University and the Hubrecht Institute.
