Welcome to the French Institute of Bioinformatics.

The French Institute of Bioinformatics (referred to as IFB hereafter) is a national service infrastructure in bioinformatics that was created following the call for proposals, “National Infrastructures in Biology and Health”, of the “Investments for the Future” initiative (ANR-11-INBS-0013).
This project gathers together the bioinformatics platforms of the main French research organizations, CNRS, INRA, INRIA, CEA and INSERM, as well as CIRAD, the Pasteur and Curie Institutes, and the French universities. There are currently 30 platforms grouped into six regional centers that span the whole of France.
IFB's principal mission is to provide basic services and resources in bioinformatics for scientists and engineers working in the life sciences.
IFB is the French node of the European research infrastructure, ELIXIR.
IFB's partners in the French Bioinformatics community are the French Society of Bioinformatics (SFBI) and the CNRS network for Bioinformatics research (GdR BIM). A list of French laboratories having a Bioinformatics activity is available here.
