Objective

Bio informatics is the science of managing and analysing biological information. Since 1988 there has been a strong European collaboration of currently 29 National and 8 Specialist bio informatics research nodes with over 32K users: the Embed, coordinating support, training and bio informatics research in life sciences. While others, like EBI and NCBI, offer general use services, an Embed node focuses on specific user needs, provides computational tools needed and supports in national language. Coordination meetings, conferences and thematic discussion lists supervised by leading bio informatics experts, will catalyse the transfer of expertise to the user. A common web portal provides access to the over 100 individual bio informatics servers within Embed. End-user meetings and continuous user polling monitor feedback and produce discussion papers for science policy makers. An electronic and a hard copy journal disseminate the suggestions along with in depth bio informatics reviews.
