Bioinformatics Research at Imperial

Bioinformatics research at Imperial is co-ordinated via a network of Affiliates. Below we list the groups that have a strong component of Bioinformatics in their research profile. In addition, we identify co-ordinating bodies at Imperial that are also Affiliated to the Bioinformatics Centre to represent the Bioinformatics interests of their members.
