  • Amos Bairoch - Lydie Lane's group

    What we do We aim to use a combination of bioinformatics and experimental methodologies to increase knowledge about the function of the 20,000 protein-coding genes in the human genome. Our main mission is the development of neXtProt, a human...

  • Fabio Rinaldi's group

    What we do The BioMeXT group specializes in Information Extraction from the biomedical literature and other textual sources. Information extraction consists in automatically extracting structured information from textual documents. We specialize...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Michael Baudis's group

    What we do The Computational Oncogenomics Group works on the computational analysis of structural genome variations in cancer. Our work centres around our arrayMap and Progenetix resources of curated molecular-cytogenetic and sequencing data....

  • SIB’s Swiss-Prot Group co-director Alan Bridge on the future of biocuration

    As announced in May, Alan Bridge is taking up the co-director role of SIB’s Swiss-Prot Group, thus succeeding to Lydie Bougueleret. He gives us his vision of the future for a unique profession, biocuration, and for the Swiss-Prot Group, one of its...

  • SourceData is making data discoverable

    A push for a paradigm change in scientific publication. Bringing to the surface information buried in the figures of scientific papers: this is the purpose of SourceData, an open-access platform developed by EMBO in collaboration with the SIB Swiss...

  • STRING-database overall best-performing network resource according to a Californian study

    With over 20,000 protein-coding genes in humans, discovering those that are linked to a given disease amounts to finding a molecular needle in a haystack.
