A center for research and education in bioinformatics and computational biology
CBU is based at the University of Bergen and consists of interdisciplinary research groups that span multiple departments at the faculties of mathematics and natural sciences as well as medicine and odontology. CBU performs theoretical and applied bioinformatics research developing novel methodologies to address fundamental questions in life science. Through the Department of Informatics, CBU offers bioinformatics programs at the bachelor, master, and PhD level.
Strengthening of CBU (2017-2022)
A major investment from the University of Bergen, Bergen University Hospital and Bergen Research Foundation (in total around 17Meuro) includes a strengthening of CBU funding the establishment of five new research groups. The purpose is to solidify the research and education within bioinformatics per se as well as strengthening the links between CBU and a number of collaborating departments.
