Programme for bioinformatics

The Programme for Bioinformatics (PBI) is based on interdisciplinary cooperation between research groups in medicine, biology, and informatics at NTNU. PBI is associated with the strategic areas at NTNU: MedTek and ICT.

PBI is important in order to exchange information between the special fields working on bioinformatics. The comitee of PBI have members from the Faculty of Medicine (DMF), the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology (NT), and the Faculty of Information Technology, Mathematics and Electrical Engineering (IME) at NTNU. In addition, there is a coordinator of the programme at the NT-faculty.
