Bioinformatics platform in Bergen
The Bergen part of the FUGE bioinformatics platform is hosted by the Computational Biology Unit (CBU) which also
coordinates the platform. Inge Jonassen, director of CBU, is the project leader of the platform.
The service group at CBU provides bioinformatics services to Norwegian researchers
working on the functional genomics projects.
Services include online web tools, provision of programming assistence, and hosting visitors.
Online services are gradually being developed based on the research activity at
the platform and requests we receive. We thus strongly encourage users of the platform
to let us know about specific needs
they might have.
Where are we?
Who are we?
The leader of the service team is Nathalie Reuter.
The other members of the service group are:
Svenn Helge Grindhaug
The Norwegian Structural Biology Center (NORSTRUCT) and the Bioinformatics platform have complementary activities.
NORSTRUCT is a national service and competence centre in structural biology, and aims at establishing
reasonably high throughput structural biology facilities of high international standard for
determination and analysis of the 3D-structures of biologically active macromolecules.
The Centre is established through the Norwegian functional genomics initiative (FUGE) and it is
financed by the FUGE-program and the University of Tromsø.
The Norwegian Proteomics Center (PROBE) established in the new building for Basic Biological Science at the University of Bergen.
