As of the end of year 2010 the Linnaeus Centre for Bioinformatics has been terminated by the decision of the faculty. It was operational since 2001. Its researchers have since moved to other departments or universities. Currently, a new organization of bioinformatics at Uppsala University is planned for.

During the ten years, 12 PhD were graduated and 5 docent-ships were obtained by the members of the centre. Publications by the members achieved a very high impact factor adjusted to discipline (1.63, for a reference see KoF’07). Several of the alumni or the former members of the LCB achieved prominent positions. Due to the lack of space, we mention only some of them here.

Dr. Örjan Carlborg who was one the first two Swedish recipients of the EURYI award is now a professor at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Dr. Vincent Moulton is a professor at University of East Anglia, Dr. Mats Gustafsson is a professor at the medical faculty at Uppsala University, Dr. Erik Bongcam-Rudloff is an Associate Professor at SLU, Associate Professor Johan Elf received several outstanding awards and is currently a holder of the KVA research position, among others. The first PhD who graduated form the LCB in Bioinformatics, Torgeir R. Hvidsten is now Associate Professor at the Department of Chemistry, Biotechnology and Food Science, Norwegian University of Life Sciences in Ås. Finally, professor Komorowski together with Dr. Elf joined forces with Professors Johan Åquist and David van der Spoel to create a Program in Systems and Computationally Biology at the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology.

The home pages of the LCB will be maintained indefinitely in order to provide access to various data and computational resources stored in its repositories.
We thank all the collaborators for the exciting years.

Jan Komorowski, Professor of Bioinformatics and former Director of the Linnaeus Centre of Bioinformatics
