Our regular bioinformatics research seminar features presentations of
original research, invited speakers, and paper reading
sessions. Please contact

We are collaborating with other universities in Vienna
on establishing a new M.Sc. program,
introducing a rigorously interdisciplinary approach to
Bioinformatics. Please contact us if you are
interested in joining the program as one of its first students.
Members of the group have been teaching at university
level and as part of international conferences for several
years. Here at Boku, we lecture a variety of
