The National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS) is a national research infrastructure in the life sciences that serves as the bioinformatics platform at the Science for Life Laboratory (SciLifeLab). It offers bioinformatics expertise in large-scale analysis of omics data, data integration, data management according to the FAIR data principles, data publishing for open science, systems development and artificial intelligence, imaging informatics, and advanced bioinformatics training.

Uppsala University hosts NBIS. Other participating higher education institutions and organisations include Chalmers University of Technology, University of Gothenburg, Karolinska Institutet, Royal Institute of Technology, Linköping University, Lund University, Swedish Museum of Natural History, Stockholm University, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Umeå University. NBIS is the Swedish node in the ELIXIR international research infrastructure.

The Council for Research Infrastructures (RFI) funds this research infrastructure, which the Swedish Research Council considers to be in the national interest.

The contact person at Uppsala University is Bengt Persson, Director of National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS).
