NBIC's BioAssist had as first goal to support the Netherlands Genomics Initiative (NGI) with their bioinformatics needs. Furthermore, all people that need bioinformatics in The Netherlands came to BioAssist for help. BioAssist had different groups for different kinds of support.

Since the funding by NGI ends December 31th, many of the activities of the Bioinformatics-as-a-service programme BioAssist have been moved into the Data Integration and Stewardship Centre (DISC), a programme of the Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences  (DTL), that will function as an expert network helping life scientists in the health, nutrition, crop and livestock breeding and industrial microbiology sectors with all their data handling.
