Welcome to the Wiki of BioAssist.
The NBIC support programme BioAssist collaborative endeavour in which biologists and (bio)informaticians organise bioinformatics support in a collaborative fashion. The BioAssist programme picks up code and content of generic value and assists the original developers in developing these assets for community use. More about BioAssist
See BioAssist for a background on the working principles of the BioAssist support programme.
So called Support platforms integrate tools and databases to provide specific bioinformatics functionalities needed for the analysis, integration and interpretation of experimental data.
BioAssist has started the implementation of bioinformatics platforms for:
- Integrated analysis of functional genomics data
- Proteomics data management and analysis
- Metabolomics data management and analysis
- High throughput sequencing
- System bioinformatics
Central Engineering Team
As of September 2009, a dedicated, centrally managed, but distributed software engineering team supports the scientifically driven platforms to develop professional software and content services.

All programmers taking part in BioAssist communicate via the BioAssist mailing list
There are also monthly Meetings of all BioAssist programmers
