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.
