Hannes Röst – Laureate of the 2015 SIB Best Swiss Bioinformatics Graduate Paper Award
Hannes received the award for his graduate paper “OpenSWATH enables automated, targeted analysis of data-independent acquisition MS data”, which was part of his doctoral studies in the team of Rudolf Aebersold at the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology at the ETH Zurich.
Four years later, Hannes has become an Assistant Professor at the University of Toronto in Canada. Together with his team, he develops open-source algorithms to analyse mass spectrometric data for integration with other omics data in the context of human health and disease.

Any words for the future generation of bioinformaticians?
Always collaborate, learn to communicate, and always attempt to understand the problems from a computational and a biological angle.
