  • Bioinformatics, a Swiss pride - 20 years of service to the life sciences and health

    Whether we are retracing the history of our ancestors, designing new drugs or understanding what gives Swiss Gruyère its unique flavour, bioinformatics has become an essential discipline.

  • Carlos-Andrés Peña-Reyes's group

    What we do With the advent of high-throughput technologies and clinical information systems, the life sciences and clinical sciences now produce very large amounts of data (big data). Our goal is to uncover hidden patterns in these data, as well...

  • Christian Ahrens' group

    What we do Our research revolves around the bioinformatic integration and analysis of datasets from state-of-the-art omics technologies, which we obtain through close collaboration with experimental biologists. These datasets include genome...

  • Christophe Dessimoz's group

    What we do At the interface of biology and computer science, we seek to better understand evolutionary and functional relationships between genes, genomes and species. Key underlying questions are: How can we extrapolate current biological...

  • Decoding the genome of the wheat stem sawfly, a major agricultural pest

    What makes the wheat stem sawfly such a major pest in the grasslands of North America? An international study co-led by SIB researchers at the University of Lausanne unravels its genome...

  • Gaston Gonnet's group

    What we do In the Computational Biochemistry Research Group, we are interested in the modelling and analysis of biological problems at the molecular level. In particular, our expertise lies in searching algorithms, optimizing algorithms,...

  • Laurent Falquet's group

    What we do In the Bioinformatics Unravelling Group of the University of Fribourg (BUGFri), we support life science researchers by providing expertise in data analysis of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) experiments, or any large-scale biological...

  • Maria Anisimova's group

    What we do The Applied Computational Genomics Team focuses on theoretical and computational aspects of modelling the process of genome evolution and adaptive change. With the growing size and complexity of molecular data, we strive to keep pace by...

  • Our annual activity report, the SIB Profile 2018, is out

    The new edition of the SIB Profile celebrates the 20 years of the Institute (1998-2018).
