Welcome to the Cancer Bioinformatics (CBI) Group. Established in 2009 the CBI forms part of the Experimental Cancer Division within the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology (CCRCB) at Queen's University Belfast. The group consists of scientists with expertise across a broad spectrum ranging from Computational Biology, Computer Vision and Machine Learning to Systems and Network Biology.

In the era of high-throughput data quantitative methods are key for elucidating biological processes. For complex diseases like cancer the deciphering of molecular signatures and networks for diagnostic and treatment modalities form major challenges for translational and experimental cancer research. The aim of the Group is to develop novel computational and statistical methods and to engage in collaborative research by working closely together with biologists and clinicians, providing the interface between data and understanding.
