Bioinformatics Laboratory

Bioinformatics Laboratory's major role is to support the bioinformatics and data analysis for all research groups within the Eijkman Institute. The laboratory is also given the task of managing the IT and computing infrastructure for the institute.

The laboratory supports the bioinformatics and data analysis at the institute by:

  • performing bioinformatics and data analysis for all research groups that require sound analysis and interpretation of their empirical/experimental data,
  • providing the necessary bioinformatics and statistical means and tools to support the analysis, and
  • training institute's staff and students in bioinformatics and data analysis

The laboratory is mainly conducting activities in:

  • empirical/experimental data management
  • biostatistical analysis
  • genome analysis
  • evolution study
  • genetic association study
  • protein modelling and molecular dynamics
