International BioInformatics Laboratory LIBi was a Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Laboratory, aimed to central activities for the modern Biology and for the Biotechnologies in its base and applied research aspects. LIBi had principal base in Bari but was meant like Laboratory "without walls"; it constituted a virtual work space for the partners which provided their infrastructures and utilized the laboratory' s tools and machineries, taking advantage from capacities and expertises provided by the other partners. Two actors' categories participated to LIBi in balanced manner: Technological Partners and Bioinformatic Partners.
4 Technological Research Units: CINECA, INFN, SPACI/CACT-ISUFI, IBM
Objective: designing and carrying out the technological platform for LIBi
