Universitat de Vic - Universitat Central de Catalunya (UVic-UCC)

The UVic-UCC is a university with a generalist vision that focusses in excellent teaching, intense internationalization and a growing impulse to research activities. The university spans an important geographical area, with Campuses in Vic, where the rectorate is located, Manresa, Barcelona and, very recently, Granollers.

The area of Bioinformatics includes the Research Group in Bioinformatics and Medical Statistics, BMS, led by Dr. Malu Calle, with collaborations with other research groups in the University, in particular the RG on Data and Signal Processing and the RG on Data Analysis and Modelling. The BMS works in three main topics:

  • Statistical Genetics and Medical Statistics,
  • Computational Structural Biology, Biophysics and Biochemistry, and
  • Evolutionary genomics - Genome Bioinformatics - Systems Biology.

The BMS coordinates the MSc on Omics Data Analysis, with an increasing relevance within the official masters in the city of Barcelona.
