Laboratory for Computational
Biology and Bioinformatics
The large majority of the funding for our activities is internal
(in very sharp contrast to Prof. Moret's laboratory at
the University of New Mexico, where all funding was
external and peer-reviewed). This funding supports our share
(the other share is contributed by Prof. Auke Ijspeert and his
Biorobotics Laboratory, BioRob)
of our administrative assistant, Ms. Fiaux, along with 4-5 PhD students.
In addition to this recurring funding, we also had one-time funding
(startup funds) from EPFL, much of which went to the acquisition of our
large compute server, and some of which supported the 2-year
postdoctoral fellowship (Fall 2008-Summer 2010) of Dr. Wei Xu.
We are also pleased to acknowledge funding from
The SystemsX.ch project is in collaboration with
with whom we also collaborate on
The Swiss National Science Foundation,
for the project entitled "Models and algorithms for genome evolution"
(2009-2012), supporting one PhD student (Nishanth Nair).
SystemsX.ch (a Swiss research
consortium), for the
entitled "Models and algorithms for noncoding genes" (2009-2012),
supporting one PhD student (Cristina Ghiurcuta).
