The Clinical Bioinformatics Area, one of the research platforms of the Fundación Progreso y Salud (FPS), has been conceived as a fundamental piece of the Personalized Medicine plan of the Andalusian community, with the mission of facilitating and providing the tools for the inclusion of the genomic data of the patient in the electronical health record.
This Area has the dual aim of developing innovative algorithms and methods for the analysis of genomic data of patients, combined with the production of high quality software specifically designed to be used by clinician end users, all this with a strong translational orientation. The ultimate objective of the Area is to bring to the clinician complex algorithms for the management of complex genomics data in a transparent way for them, which ultimately foster the adoption of innovative technologies in the current clinical practice.
Genes operate within an intricate network of interactions that we have only recently started to envisage.
Many higher-order levels of interaction are continuously being discovered.
In this scenario we are interested in developing methods and tools which can help to understand large-scale experiments from a systems biology perspective.
