Bioinformatics & Biological Computing:
Advancing biological research using computational and mathematical tools

Welcome to the website of the Bioinformatics and Biological Computing Unit at the Weizmann Institute of Science!

Bioinformatics uses computation to advance the scientific understanding of living systems. The people in our unit help life scientists use computing tools to make biological research more productive. We teach courses, present workshops and seminars, provide individual consulting, and make computing tools and computing power available. We're a resource for novices as well as those who have experience using bioinformatics tools. Learn more about our work.


PLease note that the Bioinformatics unit is now back in the Levine building
