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.

PanDrugs article has been published in Genome Medicine!

We are proud to announce that PanDrugs paper has been published in Genome Medicine today. The article can be accessed here. We want to thank all BU staff, SING group and all our collaborators for making it possible!     …

A date to remember! @PeralesPaton from @BU_CNIO defending his PhD thesis focused on the development of computational strategies to identify therapeutic targets in cancer (i.e. VulcanSpot —> Well done Javier and good luck in your scientific career!!💊🧬💻

Gracias a #ISPA @FINBAsturiasHoy por invitarnos a la jornada "Asturias ante los retos de la Medicina Personalizada de Precisión". Hoy @FAlshahrour y @Sj_Capella han hablado sobre el papel de la bioinformática en la #MedicinaPrecision y sobre la red @TransBioNet
