Perdana University Centre for Bioinformatics (PU-CBi) was established in June 2014. The mission of the Centre is to help promote and develop bioinformatics education, research and services excellence in Malaysia. The Centre aims to merge bioinformatics-led innovation with applied clinical and epidemiologic research efforts to address some of the most pressing medical challenges. This includes a commitment to provide education and training to support the development and continuity of in-house programmes, in particular to advance the translational bioinformatics skills of the next generation doctors and clinician scientists being trained at the two medical schools of Perdana University.
