Bioinformatics Network Launched By UK Bioinformatics ForumPublished On: Sun, Dec 12th, 2004 | Bioinformatics | By BioNews
UK Bioinformatics Forum has launched a web portal for the UK Bioinformatics community including freely accessible current listings of jobs, news and events. For free registration visit http://www.bio.org.uk/
UK Bioinformatics Forum’s Project Manager, Dr. Jonathan Rees, stated that â€œstimulating collaboration between industry and academia is an essential if the UK is to develop a successful bioinformatics cluster. It is clear that the UK provides an excellent environment for bioinformatics companies, the South-East of England is the centre of the investment industry in Europe, and that the UK contains the most concentrated pool of talent in this area. We are determined to advertise our excellence in this sectorâ€.
The UK Bioinformatics Forum network already counts Physiomics PLC among its members. Physiomics will be the first Systems Biology company to float on the LSE-AIM early in 2005, for around Â£6m. Physiomics uses its novel SystemCellâ„¢ software technology to apply sophisticated systems biology theory and the latest data to discovery and development. Another key member recently welcomed to the network is the Â£3.2m funded BioSystems Informatics Institute in Newcastle, UK.
UK Bioinformatics Forum’s web portal differs from other specialist bioinformatics news providers because it provides news and event information to customers free-of-charge, to encourage those in the sector to sign up and attend networking events.
