£45 million boost for big data bioinformatics research to drive discovery

£45 million boost for big data bioinformatics research to drive discovery

A £45 million boost to data and building infrastructure will support major advances in areas such as drug discovery, cancer genetics, regenerative medicine and crop disease prevention over the coming decades. 

Bioinformatics - the science of analysing, storing and sharing large biological datasets - is essential to discovering how genes affect the health of humans, plants and animals.

EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI), in Cambridgeshire, is a renowned global leader in bioinformatics. Life scientists all over the world use EMBL-EBI’s infrastructure to share and access data to drive cutting-edge research in genomics and molecular biology.
