The SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics is an academic, non-profit foundation recognised of public utility and established in 1998. SIB coordinates research and education in bioinformatics throughout Switzerland and provides high quality bioinformatics services to the national and international research community.

Dr. Laurent Falquet (Senior Scientist)

studied biochemistry at the University of Geneva and obtained his PhD in 1997. He joined the newly created Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics in 1998 as member of the EMBnet team where he was responsible for organizing undergraduate and post-graduate courses, and was involved in teaching activities as well. In addition, he was responsible of the help desk support to the life sciences community, which led to a number of collaborations, and was in charge of several web sites. In 2002 he became manager of the Swiss EMBnet node. Within the EMBnet organisation he was chief editor of the newsletter from 2003 to 2005 and was secretary of the EMBnet Executive Board from 2007 to 2009. From 2008 to 2010 he was president of the sub-committee for biochemistry and fundamental medicine of the 3eme cycle romand in Biological Sciences. He is member of the StarOmics PhD program and of the SIB PhD network committee. He joined the Vital-IT group in 2009, with responsibility for the genome assembly, annotation and comparative genomics. He is MC member, representative of Switzerland, in the COST Action SeqAhead, a network for NGS data analysis.
