General

Bioinformatics is the application of computer technology to the understanding and effective use of biological and clinical data. It is the discipline that stores, analyses and interprets the 'big data' generated by life science experiments, or collected in a clinical context, using computer science and dedicated data experts. This multidisciplinary field brings together scientists from a variety of backgrounds: biologists, computer scientists, mathematicians, statisticians and physicists (more).

The SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics is an academic not-for-profit organization whose mission is to lead and coordinate the field of bioinformatics in Switzerland. Its data science experts join forces to advance biological and medical research and enhance health (more).
As a federation of bioinformatics research and service groups, its Group Leaders are senior academic staff at our partner institutions. The Institute is also piloting several Internal Groups, which are composed of SIB Employees (more).

If you know the name of the person you would like to get in touch with, you can use our directory, which contains all our members' contact information. Alternatively, you can find the name and contact of all SIB Group Leaders (and of their team members) working in the bioinformatics field of your interest from this list. To facilitate your inquiry, you can also use our "Find an expert/expertise" search tool on our homepage and use the different criteria fields to get targeted results.
