Bioinformatics is the basis for unprecedented revolutionary discoveries in the Life Sciences field  

Bioinformatics based research glue multidisciplinary teams as demonstrated in the study led by members of  the SLU-Bioinformatics Centre, Uppsala, Sweden. The work clearly shows that discoveries at the genome level in one species can be translated to another using biobank material; in this case from dog samples  to human material.
