Bioinformatics Industrial User Platform

The BioInformatics Industrial User Platform (BIUP) is a group of Dutch companies that use bioinformatics expertise and tools in research and product development. It is an open platform for knowledge exchange and informal discussions.

Contact the BioSB community manager if you want to host a company visit.

BIUP members have a common interest in:

  • informal discussions between industrial parties that use bioinformatics tools for research and product development,
  • an infrastructure for joined bioinformatics research (e.g. safe data repository),
  • stimulating relevant bioinformatics research,
  • shaping the competences of the bioinformaticians of the future.

BIUP organises several activities:

  • company visits,
  • industry meeting at the annual BioSB conference,
  • networking events.


BIUP is open to anyone with an interest in bioinformatics in an industrial/company setting. To join the BIUP and receive regular updates about our activities, you can send an email to the BioSB community manager.
