The SIB Technology group is in charge of optimising the coordination of SIB technology-related activities. The group works in close cooperation with SIB's infrastructure providers and competence centres - in particular with Vital-IT/Swiss-Prot and sciCORE - to combine forces wherever necessary and practical. Additionally, the group advises SIB on technology-related matters. A particular focus is on web and Internet technologies since SIB offers many of its internationally known resources via the world-wide web (ExPASy.org). An overview of the technological competence areas of the group is given as well as results of (web) applications developed in co-operation with various SIB groups.
