The Delft Bioinformatics Lab performs research and educates students in the fields of bioinformatics for health and disease and bioinformatics for microbiology. We stand out in design of data-driven algorithms that are based on the latest developments in the field of Pattern Recognition. We apply our algorithms to advance the state-of-the-art in health care and industry. To this end, we closely collaborate with researchers and educators in molecular and cell biology, medicine and biotechnology.


We are involved in a number of national efforts ("centres"), most of which are funded through the Netherlands Genomics Initiative:

Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre Medical Delta Cancer Genomics Centre Kluyver Centre for Genomics of Industrial Fermentation

We also collaborate with a number of companies (Philips Research, DSM) and scientific partners (Netherlands Cancer Institute, Leiden University Medical Center, Erasmus University Medical Center, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Institute for Systems Biology, Delft University of Technology's Department of Biotechnology).
