CNIO Bioinformatics Unit

Welcome to the CNIO Bioinformatics Unit website!

Our group has a double component of bioinformatics support to Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) and external investigators and research in bioinformatics. Lab research activity is focused on the development of novel computational techniques for the integration of cancer genomic data with clinical and pathological features. Our final goal is to translate this knowledge from cancer genome-scale studies to effective cancer patient’s treatment.

Introducing bollito: a flexible pipeline for comprehensive single-cell RNA-seq analyses

We are proud to announce bollito, an automated, flexible and parallelizable computational pipeline for the comprehensive analysis of single-cell RNA-seq data. Starting from FASTQ files or pre-processed expression matrices, bollito performs…

Predicting isoforms functional importance with TRIFID

We are pleased to announce TRIFID, a Machine Learning-based method for predicting isoform functional importance. The advent of long-read sequencing means that the number of annotated transcripts in reference databases will increase. Therefore,…

We have uploaded new APPRIS annotations with TRIFID scores for Drosophila, Danio Rerio, chimpanzee, pig and chicken. All versions correspond to Ensembl 104.

More updated releases to come ...

APPRIS has released annotations for the GENCODE39 reference human gene set. This is based on APPRIS v46, look out for more v46 releases soon. @GencodeGenes @ensembl
