The contribution of bioinformatics and genomics to life sciences has become comparable to that of computer science a few decades ago: the subject of study and research for some, but an invaluable toll for all.
For many departments, bioinformatics represents the principal method for the advancement of their particular areas of research. At the same time, the development of bioinformatics is fed by advances coming from these same diverse endeavours.
In light of its interdisciplinary vision, the Robert Cedergren Centre strives to provide the necessary interface for the various faculties and departments. While fostering the development of research, the Centre also welcomes students, offering both undergraduate and graduate programs in bioinformatics.
