CAS-MPG Partner Institute of Computational Biology
The CAS-MPG Partner Institute for Computational Biology (PICB) was co-established by Chinese Academy of Sciences and Max Planck Society in 2005. PICB aims to bridge theoretical and experimental research in computational biology, thus solving problems in life science by using computational tools and unveiling life’s secrets through mathematical methods. For more information about PICB, please visit its website: http://www.picb.ac.cn/picb/indexeng.jsp . 

Shanghai Information Center for Life Sciences 
The Shanghai Information Center for Life Sciences serves as a life science think tank providing support to the national and local governments, academic and industrial communities as well as promoting public understanding of science in the fields of life sciences, biotechnology and the health industry. The Center offers services such as strategic decision support, frontier tracking, technology foresight, technology R&D and transfer, and scientific evaluation, etc. In addition, the Center promotes open cooperation with other high-level R&D think tanks for the benefit of society.
