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'.
Despite many technological and computational advances, the results of a mass spectrometry proteomics experiment are still subject to a large variability. For the understanding and evaluation of how technical variability affects the results of an... Read more
