Biotechnology – New bioinformatics approaches in service of biotechnology



One of the greatest challenges facing the biotechnology community today is to be able to make use of the vast and dynamic influx of "omics" data. The synchronised development of bioinformatic concepts and related computational tools for prediction and modelling is a prerequisite to enable the exploitation of this wealth of biological data as a source of new biotechnological applications. These can range from industry and health to the environment and agriculture. Ethical aspects such as those related to confidentiality, sensitive data and data property are relevant to some bioinformatics applications.

Action primarily consisting of activities aiming to establish new knowledge and/or to explore the feasibility of a new or improved technology, product, process, service or solution. For this purpose they may include basic and applied research, technology development and integration, testing and validation on a small-scale prototype in a laboratory or simulated environment.

Proposals should develop innovative bioinformatics approaches to close the gap between data availability and the discovery of new biotechnological applications. Proposals should in particular address the needs of SMEs active in the bioinformatics sector and should take into consideration international activities with the objective of fostering global solutions, standards and interoperability. Practical testing for validation of bioinformatics approaches should be considered.
