Portuguese Node Manager - EMBnet
EMBnet was formed in 1988 and is registered in the Netherlands as a public foundation (Stichting). Originally embodied as a European collaboration, it has expanded globally during the last twenty years, with representatives also from Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas.
EMBnet’s mission is to provide education and training in bioinformatics, to exploit network infrastructures to investigate, develop and deploy public domain software, to assist biotechnology- and bioinformatics-related research, bridging between commercial and academic sectors, promoting global cooperation through its community networks.
As global bioinformatics network, EMBnet shares common interests and works closely with other international networks and scientific societies, including the ISCB, APBioNet, SoIBio, ASBCB, BTN; in addition, it provides links and support to many smaller collaborative and thematic networks.
In April 2011, EMBnet and ISCB enthusiastically embraced the idea of a formal collaboration that will ensure EMBnet training courses are incorporated into ISCB meetings whenever possible, particularly those in developing regions (ISCB and EMBnet to collaborate on bioinformatics education and training: press release, EMBnet.journal, vol 17(1), 6).
