What we do

In collaboration with the Biozentrum at the University of Basel, the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering of the ETH Zürich, and other institutes from academia and industry, we are building up a comprehensive environment for computational biology analysis and we organize related events. Modern research methods in biology produce vast amounts of data which are difficult to interpret and understand intuitively. Many experimental research groups do not have the required hardware environment or people with the quantitative background needed to work with such data. We help FMI scientists to exploit these new data efficiently, depending on their specific needs, through collaboration, a bioinformatics helpdesk and relevant training. We focus on providing solutions based on free and open-source software, allowing the scientists to continue their own bioinformatics research even after leaving the FMI.
