SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics
SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics is a non-profit organisation that coordinates research and education in bioinformatics throughout Switzerland and provides high quality bioinformatics services (e.g. UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot, SWISS-MODEL, STRING, ExPASy ) to the national and international research community. SIB comprises over 56 research and service groups in Swiss universities, technical (ETH/EPF) and applied universities (HES).
Mark is Director of the Vital-IT competence center of the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics in Lausanne. He obtained a PhD from the University in London and did a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Lausanne before moving into the field of computational biology. In recent years he has been involved in several European projects, many in the field of diabetes, where his group has worked on providing expertise in multi-omics data integration and analysis for biomarker discovery in type 2 diabetes and its complications.
Dmitry was educated as a computational chemist with a PhD in 3D protein structure and docking. He has worked in SIB since 1998 as a database administrator, data architect and scientist, as well as a system administrator, with a focus on data harmonisation, transformation, storage and servicing according to FAIR principles.
Florence is a computational biologist at the Vital-IT competence center of the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics in Lausanne. She obtained a PhD in chemistry from the Aix-Marseille University in Marseille, then she moved to metabolomics with a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Geneva. Since 2015, she has developed expertise in multi-omics data integration and is involved in data analysis for several European projects in the field of diabetes and its complications.
