Biological Information Systems (BIBIS)


Bremerhaven is increasingly developing into a centre for food technology and biotechnology. One major factor behind this trend is the Bremerhaven Technology Transfer Centre (the ttz Bremerhaven): it currently consists of six highly modern institutes which place their research in the service of science and the specific needs of the regional and supra-regional economy. The latest addition to the research centre is the newly-founded Bremerhaven Institute of Biological Information Systems (BIBIS), which focuses on bioinformatics.

Against this background, BIBIS is particularly working on the development of processes and software tools

- for the genome analysis and the modelling of metabolic pathways
- for the configuration and evaluation of DNA microarrays,
- for the analysis of large data sets (data mining) to identify interesting patterns and relationships, and
- for the modelling of biological expertise in order to derive automatic conclusions to complex queries.
