Bioinformatics is a very broad subject area, but for our purposes it can be defined as the storage, manipulation and analysis of biological information using some aspect or another of computer science. Bioinformatics is an essential infrastructure underpinning modern biological research. At The Roslin Institute, we provide databases and applications supporting the international animal science community.
We also provide internal Institute-specific development, training and support roles for data manipulation, sequence analysis and any other aspect of the analysis of biological data using computer systems.
Some of our work is detailed in the sub-sections linked from the menu on the left-hand side of these pages.
