Welcome to the baudisgroup Pages

The baudisgroup website represents projects and information by the Computational Oncogenomics Group of the University of Zurich (UZH) and the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics (SIB). For visitors more interested in Particle Astrophysics, we strongly recommend the website of another, although related, Professor Baudis.

The Computational Oncogenomics Group focus lies in the exploration of structural genome variations in cancer. Our work centres around our [arrayMap] Progenetix resource of curated molecular-cytogenetic and sequencing data. Specific projects explore computational methods, genomics of selected tumour entities as well as genomic variant patterns across malignancies. As members of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, the group is developing standards in biocuration and data sharing for genomic variants and phenotypic data, for instance in driving development of the ELIXIR Beacon project through the Beacon+ implementation. Other projects are related to genome data epistemology, e.g. geographic and diagnostic sampling biases.

Some Projects

Ongoing software and service projects can be visited at our Github organizations ([progenetix] and [baudisgroup]) and when looking at individual contributions to e.g. GA4GH and ELIXIR.
