Resumen

The Bioinformatics Unit is mainly devoted to the analysis and support in the interpretation of data coming from OMICS disciplines. The integration of data coming from the Genomics, Proteomics, or Metabolomics fields requires huge efforts in the development of common languages, tools, and specific databases.
Differential expression or classification studies in every OMICS field usually face two big challenges: the high dimensionality and the small number of samples. Furthermore, biomedical research is frequently aimed at understanding very complex biological problems for the discovery of specific biological markers. It is then necessary to use sophisticated tools with complex statistical methodologies to derive information in the usual conditions of highthroughput experiments. At present, the emerging field of Systems Biology is aimed at analysing and integrating data from the entire OMICS field to ultimately create working models of entire biological systems.
