Brief Description of the Collaboratory :

 

Scientific questions in biology are becoming increasingly complex. This fuels the need for collaborations biology and other disciplines, such as mathematics and computer science.

In the Netherlands, NBIC (Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre) is where the two fields meet. By funding, facilitating and organising cutting edge bioinformatics research, the NBIC BioRange programme brings together biomedical scientists, plant biologists and microbial researchers with bioinformaticians and computer scientists to work on collaborative, omics-based research projects. These projects either entail 'applied' research in which a biological question is the main driver or technology/methodology driven research that addresses a specific problem in proteomics, metabolomics or systems biology.

Output of the BioRange projects is applied to further the biological research in that area and forms the basis for the NBIC BioAssist support platforms to develop broadly usable and accessible tools and applications.

BioRange Phase I is set to end in 2011. Bio Range Phase II is funded.
