The Computational Biology Unit (CBU) works at the intersection of computer science and biology.

CBU is one of the leading hubs of bioinformatics in Norway and performs highly interdisciplinary research spanning bioinformatics and computational biology. Its primary focus is on developing novel computational methods and apply these in the pursuit of fundamental biological questions.

Besides fundamental research CBU is also frequently involved in more applied collaborative projects with experimental groups that demand cutting-edge computational approaches.

Our research focuses on:

Biomolecular and mathematical modelling, RNA biology, marine systems biology, precision medicine, and women’s health.
