Erik Bongcam-Rudloff is a Chilean-born Swedish biologist and computer scientist. He received his doctorate in medical sciences from Uppsala University in 1994. He is Professor of Bioinformatics and the head of SLU-Global Bioinformatics Centre at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. His main research deals with development of bioinformatics solutions for the Life Sciences community.[citation needed]

He was the chairman of EMBnet,[1] (2003–2010) a science-based group of collaborating bioinformatics nodes throughout Europe, and a number of nodes outside Europe. He is also the director of SLU-Global Bioinformatics Centre which created eBiotools, eBioX and eBioKit.[2]

Erik Bongcam-Rudloff is also executive board member of:

  • ISCB, The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB)
  • EMBRACE,[3] European Model for Bioinformatics Research and Community Education
  • EuroKup,[4] European Kidney and Urine Proteomics, an EU COST-action.
  • UPPMAX, Uppsala Multidisciplinary Center for Advanced Computational Science. UPPMAX is a Swedish regional center for high performance computing. UPPMAX is part of SweGrid.
  • MedBioInfo, Swedish National Research School in Medical Bioinformatics.
  • GOBLET,[5] The Global Organisation for Bioinformatics Learning, Education and Training.

Coordinator of:

  • B3Africa, "Bridging Biobanking and Biomedical Research across Europe and Africa". B3Africa aims to implement a cooperation platform and technical informatics framework for biobank integration between Africa and Europe.
  • SeqAhead,[6] Chairman of the European COST Action: Next Generation Sequencing Data Analysis Network
  • ALLBIO, Broadening the Bioinformatics Infrastructure to unicellular, animal, and plant science. ALLBIO is a FP7 project, KBBE.2011.3.6-02: Supporting the development of Bioinformatics Infrastructures for the effective exploitation of genomic data: Beyond health applications.
