Who We Are

Bioinformatics is devoted to advancing the scientific understanding of living systems through computation. The Bioinformatics and Biological Computing Unit promotes and supports the adoption, use, and development of bioinformatics tools for advancing biological research.
Since bioinformatics is such a broad field, our efforts are focused on those topics that are most needed by Weizmann researchers; currently, most of our work is in the area of molecular biology. In order to provide expertise across a wide range of bioinformatics tools, the group includes scientists with advanced training in both the life sciences and the computational / mathematical sciences.

Our website contains a variety of information about bioinformatics resources available at the Weizmann Institute and elsewhere.
