Welcome to the homepage of Fachgruppe Bioinformatik (FaBI)!

The English version of this website is under development. Sorry for the inconvenience.


In September 2014, bioinformaticians in Germany united in the joint interest group Bioinformatics (Fachgruppe Bioinformatik (FaBI)). FaBI emerged from the respective groups of the four founding societies GI (German Informatics Society), DECHEMA (Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology), GBM (Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology) and GDCh (German Chemical Society). In fall 2015, the GMDS (German Society for Medical Informatics, Biometry, and Epidemiology) joined FaBI. FaBI represents more than 750 members today and considers itself as a joint representation of interests of bioinformatics research in Germany and as an interlocutor for politics, economy, and society aiming at a strong informatics-based life science research.

On this homepage we portray topics that interest bioinformaticians in Germany. You can gain an overview of bioinformatics research, bioinformatics study programs or current events and job openings for bioinformaticians.

Do you want to become a member of the Fachgruppe für Bioinformatik and strengthen the impact of our claims?

If you want a job opening, an event or other information get posted on the FaBI webpage or just want to give us some feedback, please send us an email to the respective email address.
