Center for Informatics Science (CIS)
To be the leading center for informatics science benefiting Egypt and the region by advocating excellence in goal-oriented applied informatics research.
To conduct research and development of novel technologies for the management and interpretation of scientific information.
- Data and Text Mining is a field that aims at discovering “useful and previously unknown ‘gems’ of information in large text amounts” thus trying to maximize the benefits of increased textual availability. Examples of applications include security, biomedical applications, online media, sentiment analysis, marketing applications and academic applications, among others.
- Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary field joining the field of Biology and Computer Science. Bioinformatics is concerned with the organization and analysis of biological data. For molecular biologists, Bioinformatics is the practice of using software tools to analyze biological data to extract new data, generate new hypotheses, or search for effective molecules. NUBIOS (Nile University Bioinformatics Server).
- Medical Imaging and Image Processing focuses on the development of imaging devices to reveal different aspects of the tissue and organs based on different physical properties of tissue. This includes the ability to block x-ray (radiography and CT), the magnetic properties of tissue (MRI), the absorption and incorporation of isotopes (nuclear imaging, SPECT and PET), the mechanical property and its interaction with the propagating sonic waves (ultrasound), and other novel modalities. The implementation of these technologies is manifested in the number of modalities that are currently being used: CT, MRU, US, SPECT, PET, etc.
