The laboratory of bioinformatics was created in 2018 to develop the field of bioinformatics at the Faculty of Computer Science. Due to the revolution in high-throughput technologies bioinformatics became Big Data Science in Genomics. The main direction of educational and scientific activities of the laboratory are fundamental research in the arta of DNA secondary structures and their role in genome functioning, chromatin organization and DNA-protein interactions. Students can take an internship and be involved in active scientific research at the early stages of their education. Laboratory has colloborations with the world leading laboratories of bioinformatics.
Laboratory of Bioinformatics organised the first international summer school in bioinformatics. The school was held online on August 24-28.
