Welcome to the Centre for Molecular and Biomolecular Informatics, the CMBI. We do research and education, and provide services in bioinformatics and cheminformatics.

  • Research. The four groups in the CMBI work on:

    • Huynen: Comparative genomics
    • Van Hijum : Bacterial genomics
    • Ritschel: Computational Discovery and Design
    • Vriend: Protein Structure Bioinformatics

  • Education: The CMBI is committed to a series of educational projects, ranging from high school to postgraduate courses and from a MSc-programme in Bioinformatics to international workshops.

  • Services: We maintain computational facilities, databases, and software packages in bioinformatics and cheminformatics. The cheminformatics services are directly available at CMBI, many of the bioinformatics services are offered via the (inter-)national service platforms (NBIC, EBI, etc).

  • Technology center Radboudumc: The mission of the CMBI is to engage in research that is strongly linked to real-world biological problems. The CMBI preferably collaborates closely with experimental groups in research projects where both data driven hypotheses and experimental validation are being performed. Additionally, the CMBI provides a ‘hotel’ function where people from other research groups can apply bioinformatics tools on their own data sets with help and guidance from CMBI staff with the required expertise.
