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.

The long-standing cooperation between members of KERMIT and members of the Department of Information Technology and the Turku Centre for Computer Science (University of Turku, Finland) has resulted in the 2015 IEEE Computational Intelligence Society Outstanding TFS Paper Award for their contribution 'A kernel-based framework for learning graded relations from data' (W. Waegeman, T. Pahikkala, A. Airola, T. Salakoski, M. Stock and B. De Baets) which has appeared in the December 2012 issue of IEEE Transactions on Fuzzy Systems. (http://cis.ieee.org/)
