What is the SBF?

The vision of the Scottish Bioinformatics Forum (SBF) is: “To establish Scotland as
a globally-recognised and leading location for conducting cutting-edge bioinformatics research and sustainable commercial activity.”

The SBF engages with developers and users of bioinformatics methods, and supports both the academic research base and commercial organisations by actively promoting training and facilitating access to bioinformatics skills.  It also seeks to increase the international profile of Scottish bioinformatics, attract investment and encourage academic excellence in bioinformatics.

SBF activities are steered by a management group appointed by the RSE Scotland Foundation, with support from an advisory group which consists of representatives from academia, industry and development organisations across Scotland.
