Melbourne Bioinformatics


Melbourne Bioinformatics is the next evolution of the Victorian Life Sciences Computation Initiative, which was funded by the Victorian Government and contributing institutions and hosted by The University of Melbourne.

This initiative built up a team of experts and infrastructure to better equip Victoria’s exciting biomedical, agricultural and biotechnology industries for the fast-growing era of life sciences computing.  As new knowledge is generated, the broader Victorian community will benefit through improved medical, environmental, agricultural and health outcomes.

The Victorian State Government continued its support throughout 2015-16 as the plan for Melbourne Bioinformatics developed.  The University of Melbourne has continued to administer and govern this activity to ensure its success.
