Bioinformatics activities at the University Hospital San Martino IST in Genoa

Paolo DM Romano


This report summarises some of the bioinformatics activities that have been carried out since 1986 at the National Cancer Research Institute of Genoa, now University Hospital IRCCS San Martino IST. Two main interrelated research lines are highlighted: data management for biological resources, and automation of data retrieval and analysis. As developments in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) are fundamental to bioinformatics, the NETTAB workshops, which are devoted to the analysis of the impact of new ICTs on bioinformatics research, are also presented.
