  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Niko Beerenwinkel's group

    What we do The Computational Biology Group is involved in research and teaching in the areas of computational biology, biostatistics, and systems biology. Our activities include the development of mathematical and statistical models, their...

  • Richard Neher's group

    What we do Our goal is to understand how evolution works at the molecular level and how organisms adapt to changing conditions through random mutations and recombination. Pathogens provide excellent model systems for studying these processes. We...

  • 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...

  • Taming the BEAST – A community teaching material resource for BEAST 2

    As the amount of sequencing data increases there is a growing demand for the skills and experience to confidently conduct phylogenetic and phylodynamic analyses. PhD students and postdoctoral researchers from Prof. Stadler’s group launched an...

  • Tanja Stadler's group

    What we do In the Computational Evolution Group, we develop phylogenetic tools in order to understand evolutionary processes. Using our phylogenetic methods, we aim to improve our understanding of past evolutionary and population dynamic processes...
