Group of Sven Bergmann



Sven Bergmann heads the Computational Biology Group since 2005 when he joined the Faculty of Biology and Medicine at the University of Lausanne. Sven became Associate Professor in 2010 after successfully completing his tenure track. He is also affiliated with the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics since 2006.

Sven studied theoretical particle physics with Prof. Yosef Nir at the Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel) where he received his PhD in 2001 for studies of neutrino oscillations and CP violation. He then joined the laboratory of Prof. Naama Barkai in the Department of Molecular Genetics at the same institute, where he first worked as a Koshland postdoctoral fellow and later as staff scientist.




Research Summary

We develop and apply methods for the integrative analysis of large-scale biological and clinical data. Our goals are to improve fundamental understanding of how genetic variability affects phenotypes, to learn about underlying molecular mechanisms, and to make use of our insights to improve the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of disease whenever possible Learn more. We are also interested in relatively small biological systems that can be modeled quantitatively. Here our goal is to better understand the properties of these systems that contribute their functionality such as robustness and evolvability under changing environmental conditions. Learn more.
