Research Interests

Our interests include computer modelling of biological processes, especially those related to cell signaling. Modelling requires access to a variety of data that needs to be collected or generated. These activities include data warehousing, data mining, prediction of protein-protein interactions and biological text-mining.

Our recent work on a consolidated protein interaction database can be found at .

About this image
iRefIndex (interaction Reference Index) provides an index of protein interactions available in a number of primary interaction databases including BIND, BioGRID, DIP, HPRD, IntAct, MINT, MPact, MPPI and OPHID. This index allows the user to search for a protein and retrieve a non-redundant list of interactors for that protein.

iRefIndex uses the Sequence Global Unique Identifier (SEGUID) to group proteins and interactions into redundant groups. This method allows users to integrate their own data with the iRefIndex in a way that ensures proteins with the exact same sequence will be represented only once.

Local Seminar Series

The Biotechnology Centre of Oslo holds a weekly Bioseminar on Tuesdays at 3 PM in room 10 of Forskningsparken at. Gaustadalléen 21 (see map here).

The Bioinformatics Seminars are held ever Wednesday at 12:15 by the Joint Centre for Bioinformatics in Oslo located at Gaustadalléen 25 (see map here).


Ian Donaldson is organizing this year's Molecular Biotechnology Course at the Biotechnology Centre of Oslo. You can find the MNBTS 9000 course web page here and the latest schedule here.

Introductory Perl is taught by Antonio Mora and Ian Donaldson as part of the MBV3070 course.

Antonio Mora and Ian Donaldson also hold the "Applied readings in mathematics, computer science and biology" course every second Autumn term. See MBV-INF4410.
