Welcome to the IBIVU

About the IBIVU
The Centre for Integrative Bioinformatics VU (IBIVU) is a recently founded centre by the Faculty of Sciences and the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences with strong support from the VU Central University.
The IBIVU has a core Bioinformatics section which focuses on developing bioinformatics methods and a Systems Bioinformatics section which focuses on modeling biological systems. The IBIVU is supported by the Department of Computer Science and the Institute for Molecular Cell Biology (IMC).
The main activities include the integration of bioinformatics activities and teaching bioinformatics at bachelor and master level.
