A brief history of SIB

With the creation of the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics in 1998, Switzerland made a historical move and positioned itself as a pioneer in the field of data science.

Twenty years later, (re)discover the Institute's history and its remarkable growth, from the early days to a mature national infrastructure and diverse community of 800 scientists in 2018, leading research and providing in-depth bioinformatics expertise to the life science and clinical community.

This short animation movie was produced thanks to the generous financial support of SIB's 20th anniversary sponsors.
