Bioinformatics platform is a part of Berlin Institute of Medical System Biology (BIMSB) of MDC-Berlin. The platform creates and maintains bioinformatics tools and databases, and studies biology using available or in-house computational techniques. In addition, the platform provides collaboration opportunities and services for BIMSB and MDC scientists.
We have a broad interest in gene regulation, specifically transcriptional regulation and association of transcriptional regulation with epigenomics. We are aiming to use data intensive computational methods to uncover patterns in gene regulation relating to cell differentiation and complex diseases.
Resources and training
In addition to collaboration opportunities, the platform offers knowledge-base, help-desk and training for BIMSB scientists. The databases, software and how-tos maintained by the platform are listed on the resources page. The training opportunities will be summarized at training page.
