NORBIS, the Norwegian Research School in Bioinformatics, Biostatistics, and Systems Biology was founded in 2015 to build and unite competences at a national level. It is a collaborative work between Norwegian Universities and non-academic partners. The school is funded by the Norwegian Research Council.
The NORBIS research school aims to provide a high quality PhD education through its network of excellent research groups in Norway within the fields of bioinformatics, biostatistics, and systems biology. The school aims to educate methods-oriented researchers who will in the next round develop, teach, train, drive, and support use of bioinformatics, statistical genomics and computational biology within the wider area of molecular life science.
