Welcome to Applied BioInformatics

We @ WUR offer you the latest in high throughput DNA sequencing and analysis technology. Delivering genomes in ways that can be directly used for research and application is our core expertise, especially in targeting complex genomes.
This we combine with state-of-the-art computational infrastructure focussing on high quality hybrid assembly, annotation, data integration as well as appropriate use and developments of tools and technologies.
Our infrastructure and expertise boost biological innovation by exploiting the DNA sequence of the genome. Advances in DNA applications require a reference genome, a pangenome or genomes of populations to drive progress. All genomic DNA may be equal, but some genomes are more equal than others. Determining a genome sequence is not really a challenge any more, except when a genome is polyploid, highly repetitive or otherwise complex. Effective exploitation of genomes for breeding, biotech, biomedical, or veterinary applications, is a different story. You can easily drown in data and tools available. Our expertise helps you extract considerable added value from large data sets.
Your data. Your BIG data.

On this website, we highlight the expertise, infrastructure and track record of the Applied Bioinformatics group of Wageningen UR that is available for your innovation and development.
