NORBIS is the Norwegian research school in bioinformatics, biostatistics and systems biology, and was founded in 2015. The school is a collaboration between eight Norwegian universities, and aims to build and unite competences at a national level. We develop new courses, build educational tracks and promote a new scientific community for our students. It is our aim that our graduate students will contribute strongly to methods development within the fields covered by the school, and that they will drive and contribute to the most important scientific projects in molecular life sciences in Norway and internationally.
The NORBIS research school provides a high quality PhD education through its network of excellent research groups in Norway. We aim to educate method-oriented researchers, who in the next round will develop, teach, train, drive, and support use of bioinformatics, statistical genomics and computational biology within the wider area of molecular life science.
