The LUMC BioSemantics Research Group

Knowledge discovery for Human Genetic Diseases

The BioSemantics group in Leiden investigates and applies methods from the field of information science to help understand the mechanisms underlying human genetic diseases and shorten the path to new treatments for (rare) diseases. It applies a multidisciplinary ‘enhanced science’ (e-Science) approach to optimally exploit the expertise of biologists, bioinformaticians, and computer scientists.
