Welcome to our website!

You are now viewing the homepage of PIT Bioinformatics Group. We are a bioinformatics research group, established in 2005, in the Institute of Mathematics of the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary. We solve problems arising in life sciences by mathematical and informatical means.

During the past years we have developed several online tools for bioinformatics research. These useful pieces of software, which run on our high-performance server computers, are available on the online tools page or in the sidebar in the right.
