Eduardo Gomez Restrepo (Centre for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology of Colombia (BIOS))


In 2007, the national government and public and private entities defined that it was necessary to take advantage of Colombian biodiversity through a high-level research center in the country that developed and harnessed its great potential in the fields of Bioinformatics, Biology Computational and Data Science. This idea pointed to the achievement of the objectives in innovation and economic development of the national government so that in 2008 its creation began, thanks to a cooperation agreement between a private public alliance. Additionally I want to talk about one of our main projects: ORIGEN, a national strategy of precision medicine for the genetic study of the Colombian population through the use of tools in artificial intelligence.
