The University of Bologna is the oldest university in Europe and it welcomes almost 100.000 students every year.
Bioinformatics is a well studied research topic in Bologna and it is also the focus of education. For the latter, there is a 2-year International Master’s Degree on Bioinformatics, whose students perform internships in renowned european laboratories, while the anual Winter School invites as speakers internationally praised group leaders.
Bioinformatics research at the University of Bologna is carried by the Interdepartmental Centre “L. Galvani” for integrated studies of Bioinformatics, Biophysics and Biocomplexity, that embraces the departments of physics, biology and computer science, along with single laboratories like the Biocomputing group.
AMong the services offered there are proteomics prediction softwares and tools for analysing the correlation between SNPs and diseases.

The paradigm for molecular interpretation of complex events at the cell level has shifted. Large scale genomic profiling of species, including humans, has become commonplace and sequencing technology is no longer a main bottleneck. Sequencing and data analysis are common practice also in medicine, when addressing the problem of the molecular origin of diseases. In … Continue reading 16th Bologna Winter School – NGS data, Bioinformatics and New Molecular Scenariosmore >
