CIG - Center for Integrative Genomics

Structure, function and evolution of chemosensory systems.

Richard Benton lab

Our research aims at understanding, through genomic approaches, how the interplay between various transcription factors and the corresponding regulatory networks, controls metabolic homeostasis in physiological and pathological conditions. The liver and white adipose tissue (WAT), which are important organs with respect to energy balance, are the main targets of our studies.

Béatrice Desvergne lab

Reseach in the Franken lab focusses on the genetics and energetics of sleep homeostasis and circadian rhythms in the mouse using a variety of –omics (transcriptome, metabolome, epigenome, microRNAs), behavioral (activity, qEEG), imaging (life imaging of  gene expression), and modelling techniques.

Paul Franken lab

Our group explores the molecular mechanisms and physiological functions of biological timekeeping by circadian clocks in mammals.

David Gatfield lab


Influence of genome structure on phenotypes.

Alexandre Reymond lab


I am interested in understanding how ecosystems of microbes evolve over time, and how they are shaped by the interactions taking place between individual microbial cells.

Andrzej Stasiak lab


DEE - Department of Ecology and Evolution
We try to understand how the interplay of population structure, trait architecture, and  selection affect evolutionnary processes. For this, we use different approaches, from theory and the development of statistical tools to data mining and field observations.

Jérôme Goudet lab

We link genome evolution with evolution of development, using bioinformatics.

DCB - Department of Computational Biology

We are interested in applying computational methods and evolutionary modeling to test hypotheses about the evolution and adaptation of species using both genmic, phenotypic and ecological data.

Nicolas Salamin lab


We develop and apply methods for the integrative analysis of large-scale biological and clinical data, as well as small regulatory systems.

Sven Bergmann lab


We work on molecular genetics and genomics of hereditary retinal degeneration, an area of research that is a paradigm for both medical genetics and neurodegenerative conditions.

Carlo Rivolta lab


Our research by combines the predictive power of computational biology with extensive genetic and molecular analysis of candidates and aims to understand what are the contributions to homeostasis, phenotypic variation and disease of long noncoding RNAs (lincRNAs).

Ana Marques lab

DMF - Department of Fundamental Microbiology

We study microbial symbiosis with a focus on gut microbiota-host interactions. Our current work is centered on honey bees and related social bee species.

Philipp Engel lab


Our group is interested in understanding how ecosystems of  microbes evolve over time, and how they are shaped by the interactions taking place between individual microbial cells, strains and species.

Sara Mitri lab


IMUL - Institute of Microbiology

Our lab aims at better understanding HIV life cycle and its interactions with the human cell, in order to identify novel strategies to eradicate HIV as well as to develop new tools for gene therapy and lab applications.

Angela Ciuffi lab


IUMSP - Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine

Development of statistical methods for the better understanding of the genetic architecture of complex traits.

Zoltan Kutalik lab


LICR@UNIL - Ludwig Center for Cancer Research of the UNIL

We are developing new computational approaches to study the relationship between immune and cancer cells in tumors and how this could help optimizing immunotherapy treatments.

David Gfeller lab


SIB - Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics

In the Bioinformatics Core Facility BCF of UniL-SIB we entertain a broad range of collaborations and of bioinformatics activities with a focus on statistical-epidemiological methodology for OMICS data and on applications in medicine and oncology (explorative analyses, prognostic and predictive biomarkers, personalized medicine).

Mauro Delorenzi lab


Computer-aided protein engineering and drug design for cancer therapy.

Olivier Michielin lab


Consulting for the life and medical research on bioinformatics and computational biology, from infrastructure to analysis methods.
