  • Bastien Chopard's group

    What we do In the Scientific and Parallel Computing (SPC) Group, we develop new algorithms and methods to better understand and/or predict various phenomena in biology. We focus on multiscale modelling and computing, high-performance computing,...

  • Cells are able to detect more shades of information than previously thought

    Hacking a cell’s communication system is a common feat of information diseases, such as cancer. Understanding how information is conveyed at the molecular level is therefore crucial. So far, one of the most common cell receptors was thought to...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • The origin of the mammalian brain uncovered

    The mammalian brain is characterised by the development of a vast neocortex that is superposed to the ancien ‘reptilian’ paleocortex. This distinction derives from how neurones are made. But how different parts of the brain decide which...
