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.

CNIO "La Caixa" Frontiers Meeting: Heterogeneity and evolution in cancer

- REGISTRATION OPEN - Cancers are dynamical and heterogeneous biological processes. Heterogeneity and evolution are the main factors driving oncogenesis, growth, invasion and failure of therapy. Longitudinal, multi-sampling and single cell…

Our new article is out! @Cancers_MDPI ---> In Silico Drug Prescription for Targeting Cancer Patient Heterogeneity and Prediction of Clinical Outcome:


Glad to share our new work in collaboration with @Yardena. Novel experimental+computational analyses in melanoma uncouple the effects of tumor heterogeneity and mutation burden on immune response, and predict outcomes of patients treated with ICB.
