About Us

Overview & Inspiration

Following several successful ventures in research collaborations from the year 2014, the Centre of Excellence for Omics-Driven Computational Biodiscovery (COMBio), AIMST University, Malaysia was conceptualized and established between AIMST University, Prof. Thomas Sicheritz-Ponten and Assoc. Prof. Dr. Bent Petersen from University of Copenhagen in September 2017. Over the years, the Centre has grown from the funds generated through bioinformatics analysis services, workshops and several national as well as international grants secured by the team. Our focus is on using computational tools and AI for biodiscovery.

VISION

To become a referral point for Bioinformatics & AI 

MISSION

  • To conserve biodiversity through innovative R&D in computational biodiscovery, integrating omics technologies, supercomputing and AI

  • To train the next-generation cross disciplinary and transnational scientists
