How we work

We don't work with clients, we establish partnerships: even for one-off collaborations, we strive to deeply understand the data and the objectives of the project we work on. Our partners appreciate our reliability, commitment and team spirit.

Our track record spans biomedical research projects of different sizes - from punctual help to long-term European projects.

We are recognized for our flexibility and independence, allowing us to tailor efficient solutions and propose advisory services to each situation. For example, the collaboration can be customized to include our partner's own ontologies, provide support to validate internal approaches or integrate large and complex amounts of data of various types and origins.

We train both beginners and experts in bioinformatics methods, languages and best practices.

Our highly qualified team of 30 people has an average seniority of 9 years at SIB.
