The Laboratory for Biological Information Processing - LabPIB (after the Portuguese acronym), was created in 2008 with the mission/ambition of contributing to the understanding of biology by means of bioinformatics research, teaching and outreach. Given the broad implications of bioinformatics to modern biotechnology and biology itself, we consider this mission a big and important challenge. In our perspective, bioinformatics is characterized by the intense usage of computational and mathematical techniques for the generation and management of bioinformation. Here at LabPIB we develop research in specific sub(sub-sub)-fields of bioinformatics related to Molecular Biology and Systems Biology of microorganisms.
