The Bloomsbury Centre for Bioinformatics is a collaborative venture between UCL and Birkbeck College. The research groups affiliated with the Centre span disciplines such as protein structure prediction and classification, genomic and transcriptomic data analysis, statistical genetics and systems biology.

The BCB is also affiliated with the Institute of Structural Molecular Biology.

Research: The BCB acts as a focus for world-class research excellence in bioinformatics within UCL, Birkbeck College and affiliated institutes.


Support: We can provide bioinformatics expertise to develop collaborative research projects between the Centre and research groups within UCL and Birkbeck College.


Training: We conduct a series of tailored training courses to meet the specific needs of members of UCL and Birkbeck College.

Bioinformatics Showcase Day: Wednesday 13 April 2016

The Bloomsbury Centre for Bioinformatics (BCB) will be hosting a “Bioinformatics Showcase Day” on Wednesday 13 April 2016. This event will be aimed at providing life scientists with the opportunity to find out about open access bioinformatics tools, software or databases publicly available online (or for download) that were developed by bioinformaticians at UCL and Birkbeck.

The talks will take place in the afternoon and will be followed by a poster, wine and laptop session at which attendees can try out, or ask questions on, tools or databases introduced in the talks session.
