Computational Life Science Cluster (CLiC)

The Computational Life science Cluster (CLiC) at KBC aims to stimulate, organize and advance computer based modelling, tools and strategies to understand complex biological systems and e-bioscience at Umeå University. One of our specific goals is to establish a critical and missing link to the ongoing strong experimental research at UmU, e.g. UPSC, UCFB, FuncFiber, MIMS, UCMR and UCMM centers. This in turn, will establish a unique bioinformatics/e-science profile in Umeå. The identified main Research Areas within CLiC are:

  • Omics-technologies (mainly transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics)
  • Network modeling, databases and visualization
  • Structural biology and sequence analysis
