About the Utrecht Bioinformatics Center
The Utrecht Bioinformatics Center (UBC) is a center that brings together a large number of internationally leading research groups with a strong bioinformatics component, located within Utrecht University, University Medical Center Utrecht and Hubrecht Institute. The Center was initiated in January 2014 as part of the focus call “Integrative bioinformatics for the life sciences and sustainability” awarded by Utrecht University. The primary aim of the center is to further strengthen and promote bioinformatics research within the life sciences and sustainability domains by coordinating bioinformatics infrastructure, bioinformatics education and bridging bioinformatics expertise. The center also provides (inter)national exposure to the high class data-driven bioinformatics performed in Utrecht. The center is run by an executive committee and advised by an advisory committee.
