Our Delivery Plan 2005-2008 recognised an increasing role for bioinformatics and biological resources (BBR) to enable cutting edge bioscience with a need to provide "proper support for resources such as databases, genetic resources and culture collections which require long term maintenance and curation".

Key aims

  • To support the establishment, maintenance and enhancement of community resources required by bioscientists
  • To support high quality bioinformatics and biological resources that:
    • underpin our Council-wide research and policy strategic priorities
    • will underpin international quality UK bioscience within our remit
