Bioinformatics plays a crucial role in understanding the cancer genome and the future of cancer therapeutics. By utilising bioinformatics-based approaches, we can transform vast amounts of biological data into comprehensible models that provide a deep understanding of cancer and the complex genotype-phenotype relationships necessary to identify molecular cancer-driving alterations and novel therapeutic targets.

The Bioinformatics Unit (BU) at the CNIO has several goals: (i) developing novel computational methodologies and bioinformatics tools to integrate biological and clinical data, (ii) analysing genome data of cancer patients to identify new biomarkers and drug response mechanisms, (iii) providing bioinformatics support through data analysis and interpretation using computational and statistical methods, (iv) maintaining the scientific computing facilities at the CNIO, and (v) offering training in bioinformatics tools and methods.
