Prof. Jacek Błażewicz was distinguished by the Chinese Academy of Sciences!

We are pleased to announce that prof. Jacek Blazewicz received the title of Distinguished Scientist of Chinese Academy of Sciences.This title is a part of CAS President's International Fellowship (PIFI) program, it is awarded to foreign scientists who are respected figures in their own fields with outstanding scientific accomplishments. Every year, CAS institutes submit applications for nomination of (up to) 200 foreign scientists, from whom the laureates (from several research fields) are finally chosen. Prof. Błażewicz is a laureate of CAS PIFI award for outstanding scientists in the field of engineering and information technology. His nomination was submitted by Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Shenzhen Institute of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.Congratulations on Professor's well-deserved success!

Marta Szachniuk nominated for Polish Intelligent Development Award!

We are pleased to inform, that a member of our group - prof. Marta Szachniuk, has been nominated for the 6th edition of Polish Intelligent Development Award in the category "Scientist of the Future". The nomination was given in recognition of Marta's scientific project, RNApolis. The awardees will be chosen in 2021.Official website of the prize (in Polish) Nomination letter (in Polish)

About us
The Bioinformatics Group established by prof. Jacek Błażewicz started to evolve in the second half of 90's in the Laboratory of Algorithm Design and Programming Systems within the Institute of Computing Science of the Poznan University of Technology. Today, it collects also researchers from the Laboratory of BioinformaticsInstitute of Bioorganic Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Joint work of the two Institutes has resulted in a number of projects, publications and patents. Recent participation in a structural grant and formal establishment of the European Center for Bioinformatics and Genomics (ECBiG) has pointed out the importance of this cooperation and strengthened the research potential of the group.

The main areas of our research are:
DNA sequencing and assembling (including design of algorithms for the NGS sequencers);
protein structure analysis;
RNA structure analysis and prediction (including automatic tertiary structure prediction tool);
- nanotechnology and DNA computing;

Our group is involved in creation and conducting both undergraduate and graduate studies in Bioinformatics, being a common project of two leading Poznan universities: Adam Mickiewicz University and Poznan University of Technology. The studies offer modern teaching program with courses covering wide areas of biology and computer science, and - first of all - the typically bioinformatics issues.

Students of Computer Science at the Faculty of Computing Science of Poznan University of Technology have the opportunity to participate in bioinformatics lectures and classes. This one-semester course introduces basic notions and issues from bioinformatics and molecular biology, and explains classical algorithms from this area. Laboratory classes enable students to invent and implement their own bioinformatics algorithms solving simple problems.
