The Bielefeld Institute for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (BIBI) and the Information Centre for Life Sciences (ZB MED) in Cologne jointly supply important compute services, data, and scientific literature to researchers in the life sciences. This alliance provides solutions that cover the complete spectrum of information supply and data analysis: a unique combination of literature and information supply including computational analysis of big data. This enables new scientific insights for researchers of all life science disciplines as well as bioinformatics.
A structural objective of BIBI in cooperation with the Cologne Information Centre for Life Sciences (ZB MED) is to achieve a joint affiliation with the Leibniz Society.
BIBI introduces modern infrastructures and additional bioinformatics expertise into the broad repertoire of ZB MED. The strategic alliance of ZB MED and BIBI implements numerous new services: bioinformatics compute solutions and the graduate school „Digital Infrastructure for the Life Sciences“ (DILS).
The alliance of ZB MED (orange level) and BIBI (blue level) introduces numerous new services or extends existing services (grey level) by linking content, data science, cloud computing, and extending the target groups. In this way, ZB MED and BIBI jointly compaign for open science in the life sciences.
