    2021 SIB Bioinformatics Awards - Calls now open!

    To promote excellence, diversity and innovation in the field of bioinformatics, the SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics created a set of Bioinformatics Awards twelve years ago to acknowledge early career bioinformaticians and ground-breaking resources.

    SIB Awards honour bioinformatics excellence in three categories:
    • Early Career Bioinformatics Award – an international award to recognise the excellence and promising nature of a researcher’s early career, based on one or several projects and/or papers focussing on the in silico analysis of biological sequences, structures or processes. More information
      Call for entries: 2 November 2020 – 31 January 2021
    • Swiss Bioinformatics Graduate Paper Award – a national award that recognises an outstanding graduate paper published by a PhD student in the area of in silico analysis of biological sequences, structures or processes. More information
      Call for entries: 2 November 2020 – 31 January 2021
    • Bioinformatics Resource Innovation Award – an international award that recognises newly developed bioinformatics resources with an important impact on life science research or the clear potential to make such an impact. More information
      Call for entries: 9 November 2020 – 28 February 2021

    Candidates from the global bioinformatics community are encouraged to apply for these prestigious awards. Besides a cash prize, all laureates will be invited to present their work at the [BC]2 Basel Computational Biology Conference in Autumn 2021 in Basel, Switzerland.

    A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
    by seqadmin

    ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

    Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
    by seqadmin
    Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

    The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
