The viral genomics pipeline V-pipe under the spotlight

From SARS-CoV-2 monitoring to HIV antiviral drug resistance detection, the SIB Resource V-pipe orchestrates several software packages to detect the genomic diversity of a virus population in a sample or individual. 

Inferring human genomes at a fraction of the current cost promises to boost biomedical research

Thousands of genetic markers have already been robustly associated with complex human traits, such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, obesity, or height. A new statistical method, developed by Olivier Delaneau’s group at the SIB, offers game-changing possibilities.

From v1 to v14: the gene expression database Bgee under the spotlight

The SIB Resource Bgee is a database for retrieval and comparison of gene expression patterns across multiple animal species. It provides an intuitive answer to the question “where is a gene expressed?” and supports research in cancer and agriculture as well as evolutionary biology.

Cellosaurus and Rhea join the portfolio of ELIXIR Core Data Resources

Two further resources developed by SIB Groups have been designated as of crucial importance for life sciences, as a result of the latest edition of the selection process led by ELIXIR at the European level: Cellosaurus and Rhea.
