The Bioinformatics Centre
In the Bioinformatics Centre we conduct basic research in bioinformatics using mostly probabilisticmodels and comparative methods for computational analysis of non-codingRNA, gene regulation and protein structure. We are in charge of thetwo-year Master's program in Bioinformatics.
The Centre was established as an independent centre under the Facuty of Science in March 2002 to start bioinformatics research and education at the University. In september the first students started in the two-year master's program. In 2006 the Centre became part of the Department of Molecular Biology, which later became Department of Biology, in which it constitutes one of the biggest research groups. The Centre is also closely affiliated with BRIC , which hosts almost half the group. The Centre is headed by professor Anders Krogh and the activities are mainly funded by external grants mainly from the Novo Nordisk Foundation and the national research councils.
We offer a two-year interdisciplinary master's program in bioinformatics. Each year we have accepted around 10 students in the program, roughly half of them Danish. All courses are taught in English. More information can be found through the links in the left menu.
The Centre has subgroups working in non-coding RNA, gene regulation and protein structure prediction. We specialize in probabilistic models and machine learning. We collaborate with many experimental groups in the Department, at BRIC and at other institutions around the world.
