  • With equipment of last generation, scientists linked to FAPESP Program for Research on Bioenergy (BIOEN) begin to decipher genome of sugar cane. Read the news Pontapé inicial (Authorship: Agência FAPESP).


The Bioinformatics Group is headed by Glaucia M. Souza and the PhD Student Milton Y. Nishiyama Jr., and begun originally in the Sugarcane Signal Transduction laboratory, 2001 within the Department of Biochemistry at University of Sao Paulo. The group has now been fully integrated into the BIOEN Project funded by FAPESP and composed by many Research Groups from different Universities. The group's main aim is to develop and apply biological concepts, state-of-the-art mathematical and computer science techniques to problems now arising in the life sciences, from genomic and post-genomic era. The interdisciplinary research is closely linked with the IME Institute of Mathematical and Statistics, the Department of Biochemistry and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences though we also maintain and encourage links to other Research Groups.

The group is going forward to the development of a Computational infra-structure and computing facilities to supports high-throughput analysis for grasses and particularlly Sugarcane (Saccharum sp.). The group also maintains some dedicated computing facilities of its own to allow maintenance of specialized biological databases and public access to the software and methods developed within the group.
