LABINFO - Brazilian Bioinformatics Lab

Program Description: Labinfo at the National Laboratory of Scientific Computation of the Brazilian Ministry of Science and Technology (MCT) is located in the city of Petrópolis, just 40 miles away from the city of Rio de Janeiro. Labinfo integrates a group of interdisciplinary investigators that includes biologists, computational scientists and mathematicians interested in developing statistical and computational methodologies to be applied in the fields of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. The research spans genomics to system biology. With so many genome projects under its responsibility (Brazilian Genome, South Genome, Nitrogen Fixators, Comparative Xylella, and Burkholderia), they have developed the software SABIA (System for Automated Bacterial genome Integrated Annotation) that assembles, annotates and compares the genomes of prokaryotes, ESTs and eukaryotes. The Labinfo team has also developed several databases on different themes (MamiBase, TaxVibrio, Probacter, BMRC, TractorDB, among others) that are available on the web.

Year Started: 2010.

Organization Description: Collaborators includes several groups in Brazil and many international collaborators such as SwissProt, the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research and MD Anderson Cancer Center at Texas University.
