About NBIS

NBIS (National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden) provides bioinformatics and data science support to the Swedish life science research community since 2008. We provide a wide spectrum of services, including advanced bioinformatics analysis, bioimage informatics, data management, imaging AI support, systems and tools development, and support to national compute resources.

NBIS is a national research infrastructure which comprises ~120 experts in different fields, distributed across six sites in Sweden: Lund, Gothenburg, Linköping, Stockholm, Uppsala and Umeå. NBIS constitutes the SciLifeLab Bioinformatics platform and forms the Swedish node in ELIXIR (the European infrastructure for biological information).

In addition to hands-on assistance during research projects and systems development, NBIS also provides advanced training, offering a large catalogue of bioinformatics and data science courses, as well as a mentor programme for PhD Students.

To provide state-of-the-art bioinformatics services to the Swedish life science researchers community, NBIS is supported by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet), Science for Life Laboratory, major Swedish universities, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, NordForsk, and the European Commission.

NBIS is working in close collaboration with other SciLifeLab platforms and other national infrastructures, the SciLifeLab Data Centre, the National Academic Infrastructure for Supercomputing in Sweden (NAISS), and many other stakeholders and collaborators to create synergies and provide the most optimal services to the research community.
