Started in 1989 and headed by Dr. Jose Maria Carazo, the Biocomputing Unit (BCU) of the National Center for Biotechnology / Instruct Image Processing Center (I2PC) works in the area of Three-dimensional electron and X-ray microscopy
Biocomputing Research and Service
The research team works in new computational and experimental methodologies to solve key problems in biology. Our approach is focused on:
- Structural Biology by 3D-EM Microscopy & Soft X-rays Cellular Tomography
- Information Integration in Structural Biology
- Scientific Computing
Our service activities are structured around the recently established Instruct Image Processing Center(I2PC), developing new software infrastructures for advanced image and data processing in Electron and X-ray Microscopy.
