Bioinformatics is meant as a multi-disciplinary science for the study of biological systems at the molecular and cellular level by using informatics and computational methods and models.
Main goals of the associations are the study, development and spreading of Bioinformatics in a scientific, academic, technological and industrial environment.
Welcome to the BITS Web Site!
The Training&Teaching group of the BITS proposed to university professors a survey aimed at portraying the current situation of bioinformatics courses within undergraduate curricula in Italy.
The paper is published in Plos Computational Biology journal.

Single-cell RNA sequencing is leading the revolution in transcriptomics studies. However, scRNA-seq data are noisier and more complex than bulk RNA-seq data and are raising computational challenges in data analysis. The 2023 edition of the Lipari School on Computational Life Sciences aims to provide state-of-the-art research in the computational analysis of single cells. more

Short open reading frame encoded peptides (SEPs), or microproteins, have recently emerged as new potential players in biology. However, the cellular roles of SEPs are still largely uncharacterized. The goal of this PhD is the discovery of the cellular functions of Drosophila SEPs by the inference and analysis of their protein interaction network. more
