Welcome to the Homepage of the Multidisciplinary Research Partnership called N2N (from Nucleotides to Networks), an initiative to spearhead research on Bioinformatics and Systems Biology at Ghent University.
Recent (r)evolutions in data-producing technologies have dramatically changed the way we tackle problems in molecular biology and has created a huge need for highly trained scientists, with very diverse backgrounds, to collect, store, and analyse these data using advanced ICT infrastructures and bioinformatics tools.
According to a Labtimes publication analysis, Yves Van de Peer is the second most cited plant scientist in Europe. The citation statistics can be accessed here.
Prof. Yves Van de Peer has been awarded an ERC advanced grant entitled: 'Double-up: the importance of gene and genome duplications for natural and artificial organism populations'.
ERC Advanced Grants allow exceptional established research leaders of any nationality and any age to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains.
