Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary data driven field harnessing the computational power to solve the biological problems to improve quality of human life. The APBioNET Research Consortium aims to bring together like-minded individuals and coalesce them around research areas of interest that can benefit from their collective strength. The APBioNET RC primarily comprises of individuals with bioinformatics and computational biology expertise covering various fields of life and health sciences who have come together to address complex research questions.

Below is a list of APBioNET RC members by research interest areas:
