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’s research focus lies in the exploration of structural genome variations in cancer. Our work centres around our Progenetix resource of curated molecular-cytogenetic and sequencing data. Specific projects explore computational methods, genomics of selected tumour entities and 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. Other research is related to genome data epistemology, e.g. geographic and diagnostic sampling biases in cancer studies.

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.

Beacon v2 and Beacon networks: A “lingua franca” for federated data discovery in biomedical genomics, and beyond

Human Mutation. 2022 Mar 17. PMID:35297548

Abstract Beacon is a basic data discovery protocol issued by the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH). The main goal addressed by version 1 of the Beacon protocol was to test the feasibility of broadly sharing human genomic data, through providing simple “yes” or “no” responses to queries about the presence of a given variant in datasets hosted by Beacon providers.
