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.
