Welcome to SLUBI

The SLU Bioinformatics Infrastructure

Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet - Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Our main goal is to provide support and training in Bioinformatics for SLU staff, as well as build a strong community of bioinformaticians within SLU. Our staff is located on the 3 campuses of Ultuna, Umeå and Alnarp. We want to join forces and coordinate teaching activities, common resources (hardware, software)
