The CING Bioinformatics Group (C-BIG) is a highly inter-disciplinary team founded in 2016 to host the Bioinformatics European Research Area Chair in Cyprus under the support of the EU H2020 ERA Chair grant, BIORISE (Grant Number 669026) with an EU contribution of EUR 2 273 546 for the period 2015-2020 and since then it has been transformed to a permanent Department within the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING).
The mission of the Group is to function as a hub of excellence in the areas of applied bioinformatics to early diagnosis, effective prognosis and drug discovery contributing to the concepts of Preventive, Personalized and Precise Medicine.
This is accomplished through state-of-the-art bioinformatics research, advanced education in postgraduate level, continuous development of bioinformatics methods and tools provided either as services or as publicly available applications and participation to international networks leading/participating in highly competitive research grant applications.
Further to this, the mission of the Bioinformatics Chair within CING is to make scientific and societal impact by educating/informing students, patient groups and physicians about the potentialities of Bioinformatics to Human health and well-being.
