The Bioinformatics Institute Ghent From Nucleotides to Networks (BIG N2N) is a center of excellence in state-of-the-art bioinformatical tools and methods with applications in the fields of Sustainable Agriculture and Successful Ageing, recognized worldwide as key challenges for a sustainable society.
It was established as Multidisciplinary Research Partnership by Ghent University in 2011 as part of the strategic spearhead research policy plan promoting excellence in research, selected on the basis of the established expertise and the potential to become world leader in the field. Because of the growing importance of bioinformatics, computational biology, and systems biology in the life sciences, bioinformatics was one of the topics that were selected. In 2015 it was recognized as 'Bioinformatics Institute Ghent From Nucleotides to Networks'.
Background: With the advances in high throughput technologies, increasing amounts of cancer somatic mutation data are being generated and made available. Only a small number of (driver) mutations occur in driver genes and are responsible for... Read more
A growing number of proteogenomics and metaproteomics studies indicate potential limitations of the application of the decoy database paradigm used to separate correct peptide identifications from incorrect ones in traditional shotgun proteomics... Read more
