Within the last few years omics technologies have revolutionized biomedical research. Techniques such as Next generation sequencing, DNA microarrays, proteomics or metabolomics are allowing researchers to analyze biological processes from a global perspective and have proven to be very useful tools to characterize molecular mechanisms associated with different diseases.
These new methodologies are generating large amounts of data. Therefore, complex statistical and data mining techniques are needed for processing and analyzing these datasets, as well as high computing infrastructure to efficiently store and manage them. In this context, bioinformatics is playing a major role in genomics projects and has become an essential discipline in current research.
Our work in the unit is mainly focused on:
Among the main resources we have:
