20th anniversary of the SIB

20 years of service to the life sciences and health

As a pioneer in bioinformatics, Switzerland is recognized for its know-how and expertise. The SIB Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics was formed on 30 March 1998 thanks to the support from the Confederation, which recognized the promising future of this new discipline, at the crossroads of biology and information technology.

The Institute is now celebrating its 20th anniversary, an opportunity to take stock of two decades of discoveries and future challenges in areas such as medicine. Several original projects are planned throughout 2018, to raise awareness of bioinformatics and its key players among a wide audience.
