  • 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...

  • Christian von Mering's group

    What we do In the Bioinformatics / Systems Biology Group, we study the dynamics of entire biological systems, both at evolutionary time-scales and at shorter time-scales – down to a few minutes. We often work in close collaboration with laboratory...

  • 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...

  • Emmanouil Manolis Dermitzakis's group

    What we do Our group has a strong interest in population genomics and genetics of complex traits. We use various methodologies to understand the role of genetic variation in phenotypic variation and what fraction of genetic variation is harboured...

  • Erik van Nimwegen's group

    What we do Our main research interest in the Genome Systems Biology (GSB) Group is the study of genome-wide regulatory systems, in order to reconstruct them from high-throughput molecular data, understand and model how they have evolved, and...

  • Evgeny Zdobnov's group

    What we do The group is active in the fields of comparative genomics and shotgun metagenomics. We study molecular evolution, develop approaches to genomics data analyses, and implement computational pipelines. We apply evolutionary models to...

  • 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,...

  • Gauging the completeness of genomics data with BUSCO

    With ever-lowering sequencing costs, genomic sequencing projects have been initiated for a wide range of organisms, but the vast majority of genomes currently exist in the form of draft assemblies.

  • Gunnar Rätsch's group

    What we do We are interested in modern machine-learning techniques suitable for the analysis of problems that arise in medicine and biology. In particular, we develop new learning techniques that are capable of dealing with large amounts of...

  • 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...

  • Marc Robinson-Rechavi's group

    What we do In the Evolutionary Bioinformatics Group, we are mainly concerned with determining the role of evolutionary innovation and constraint in animals. For this, we develop methods and databases to extract reliable information from genome and...

  • 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...

  • Michel Milinkovitch's group

    What we do We combine Evolutionary and Developmental Biology as well as genomic approaches with the study of Physical Processes to understand the mechanisms generating life’s complexity and diversity. The self-organizational capabilities of...

  • Nicolas Salamin's group

    What we do We develop models and software to better understand the evolution of organisms and to test macroevolutionary hypotheses. We are looking at the ecological, genomic and morphological factors that constrain speciation and adaptation. We...

  • Philipp Bucher's group

    What we do In the Computational Cancer Genomics Group, we are interested in gene regulation in both healthy and diseased cells. Breakthroughs in genomics technologies have led to the production of large volumes of data that could potentially tell...

  • Rémy Bruggmann's group

    What we do In the Interfaculty Bioinformatics Unit of the University of Bern (IBU), we provide services and expertise to assist researchers in the three "Life-Science" Faculties (i.e. Sciences, Medicine, and VetSuisse) in data analysis and project...

  • Robert Waterhouse's group

    What we do The group’s research is focused on elucidating interactions between gene evolution and gene function through developing computational approaches to interrogate evolutionary and functional genomics data. We are developing quantifications...

  • Sara Mitri's group

    What we do Our group focuses on studying social interactions in microbial communities and how they evolve. We follow an interdisciplinary approach, where we quantify and characterize interactions within small bacterial communities in the lab, and...
