Life, Natural and Biomedical Sciences


Driving digital research and providing services to the Life, Natural and Medical Sciences

Projects we drive or collaborate in focus on data capture, curation, representation, stewardship, sharing and publishing; to ensure value is not lost, and facilitating the interpretation and the corroboration of results, making for more efficient practice.

We work with and for our international collaborators to build and extend software, develop and apply community-driven terminologies, ontology, data standards and semantic web methodologies, research and evaluate ways to improve data reusability and reproducibility, and offer data standardization and curation as a services.

Funded by BBSRC, MRC, NERC & the European Commission, we're active in an increasingly diverse range of areas including biodiversity, environmental health and environmental genomics, metabolomics, (meta)genomics, functional genomics, proteomics, system biology, stem cell &toxicogenomics.

Our collaborators & users include: the EMBL European Bioinformatics Institute; the FDA National Centre for Toxicological Research; Harvard School of Public Health; Nature Publishing Group, NERC Environmental 'Omics Centre; Janssen Pharmaceuticals; The Novartis Institute for BioMedical Research and many more.
