My primary interest lies in systems biology and multiomic data integration. I am particularly fascinated by the visualization techniques and the theory behind combining information of different scale, encoding and biological setting. Nordic Computational Biology provides a natural place for me and others to socialize, learn and develop together. The project is open for anyone with a burning interest in computational biology and related fields, a society that is actively non-exclusive which I find extremely valuable.

Marcel Tarbier

Sweden

I am a postdoctoral researcher at Karolinska Institute and SciLifeLab in Stockholm. My research focuses on quantitative aspects of single-cell biology, omics technologies and data integration to answer fundamental biological questions with regard to gene regulation and chromatin architecture. I am convinced that Nordic CompBio can address the need for computational biologists to exchange ideas past institutional and country borders.

Roza Berhanu Lemma

Regional Coordinator - Norway

Postdoctoral researcher. Interests: Computational biology, molecular biology, and gene regulation. What is quite exciting for me about Nordic Computational Biology is to see all these emerging scientists working together and building such a valuable computational community beyond their own regional base, working for a common goal of developing skilled generation of computational scientists through knowledge and skill sharing.

Begüm Serra Büyüktarakçi

Regional Coordinator - Sweden

PhD researcher. Interests: molecular evolution, origin of life, phylogenetics, and drawing trees. I am excited about the fact that Nordic CompBio will be the voice of researchers in the field of bioinformatics and computational biology in Nordic countries. We aim to achieve diversity in science and to focus on the methodological way of presenting studies that will help science communication change more beneficially.

Romain Adrien Lefèvre 

Denmark

PhD researcher in the Behavioural Ecology Group at UCPH. Interests: behavioural ecology and web development. Romain’s research project aims at investigating the mechanisms of production of «biphonation» in horses’ vocalizations as well as exploring its implication for their social communication. Besides his interest in animal cognition and welfare, Romain has a fair interest in data science and programming. On a long-term basis, he would like to make use of technology to contribute to developing new tools to evaluate animal wellbeing based on their vocal signals.

Denmark

Interests: Immunoinformatics, structural biology, simulations and data visualisation. I think Nordic CompBio offers a great opportunity to interact with your peers from different places within the region; one can learn what different people within bioinformatics are currently working on which I personally almost always find fascinating. I think it is somewhat easy to get stuck in your personal “research niche” and become a little complacent and a project like Nordic CompBio can help to broaden the horizons.

My group’s research focuses on developing computational frameworks that place genomic data into the context of gene regulatory networks and on exploring how these networks influence complex disease, with a main focus on cancer.

Thoughts on Nordic CompBio: Many of the tools and methodologies that computational biologists develop and use can be applied to or extended in a wide variety of settings and projects. Through connecting researchers from different career stages and across the Nordic countries, I hope that the NCB platform will spark creativity, increase collaborations, and create a more collective and open approach to doing research.
