University of Copenhagen

Short name: 

University of Copenhagen, Denmark (UCPH) is the largest university in Scandinavia and ranked among the top 50 universities in the world. The Department of Disease Systems Biology at the Center for Protein Research (CPR) at the University of Copenhagen works as multi-disciplinary basic research groups within bioinformatics and systems biology with particular focus on large data sets of relevance to human health. The CPR has a highly multidisciplinary profile (molecular biologists, biochemists, medical doctors, physicists and computer scientists) with a ratio highly biased towards bio versus nonbio backgrounds. The Department of Disease Systems Biology has extensive experience in working with systems biology and genomics applied to various disease areas. The staff has at CPR and elsewhere aided several genome-wide association studies in making complex based ranking instead of at the individual SNP level. Computational pipelines integrating diverse data sets have produced protein function predictors, temporal regulation in cell cycle predictors as well as phenotype associations of protein-protein interaction. The development of large genotype-phenotype catalogues. In addition, the department also has extensive experience in text mining, of e.g. electronic patient records, free text in biobank questionnaires, and scientific papers.
