Computational Biology

Modern biomedical research produces vast amounts of data, and the number of bioinformatics approaches and databases increases at a high rate. We collaborate with FMI scientists to exploit these tools efficiently. Our strongest expertise lies in the analysis and interpretation of high-throughput sequencing data such as data from (single cell) RNA-seq, ChIP-seq, Bis-seq and HiC experiments.

We also provide a bioinformatics help-desk and a computational infrastructure for biologists. Our aim is to train young researchers to become competent and independent. Therefore, 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.

We are members of the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics, and in collaboration with the Department of Biomedicine we teach courses and lectures at the University of Basel
