Research is the major thrust area at the Center for Informatics and Systems Biology. Our research includes all domains of Informatics and Systems Biology such as Drug design and discovery, Genomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics and others. Research is conducted by highly qualified scientists or research interns on contemporary topics of academic and industrial importance with a focus on research publications or products. The projects are evaluated and discussed with a core scientific committee to assess the suitability and relevance before their execution.
