Our group at the Scientific IT Services (SIS) is an interdisciplinary bioinformatics and scientific IT support group which builds up computational tools. These tools range from lab databases to reusable framework components that enable and support both data analysis and data management in life science research and beyond. We collaborate with Swiss and European research groups and industry in the life science sector – such as SystemsX.ch, SyBIT FAIRDOM, HPC-CH and swissuniversities' eSCT / EnhanceR community. We improve and port scientific software, develop data management solutions and provide associated services. We also integrate and operate data analysis pipelines, and provide training and consulting in databases, scientific software development, high-performance and cloud computing.
