We are living in a very exciting time for biology: whole-genome sequencing has opened up the field of genome scale biology and with this a trend to larger-scale experiments, whether based on DNA sequencing or other technologies.
Research at the interface of Information Technology and Biology
Information technology plays a vital role in enabling new science and discovery in biology. Our researchers are developing and applying both experimental and computational approaches to store, analyze the data, and to assign structural and functional information to key genome components.
Research collaborations with academia and industrial research organizations is essential to our life sciences research strategy. Partnering with leading research institutions outside our own organization allows us to gain new insights, face new challenges, and often compels us to innovate and be relevant to our collaborators.
