Biomina is the Antwerp core facility for bioinformatics

BIOMINA (Biomedical informatics research network Antwerp) is since 2022 a core facility, providing a multi-disciplinary network facilitating research and applications at the intersection of life sciences, medicine and computational sciences in the Antwerp region.

We unite research groups from multiple institutes and departments with a complementary expertise and interest. Biomina also shares expertise through training opportunities and expert services towards academic partners, research institutes, hospitals and industry.  Learn more about BIOMINA.

We bring together data scientists, clinicians and (bio)medical researchers in the Antwerp region.
