Harald Barsnes 2016 (Copyright Inge Jonassen)_150

Harald Barsnes

Harald is a group leader at the Computational Biology Unit at the Department of Informatics and at the Proteomics Unit at the Department of Biomedicine, both at the University of Bergen. The main focus of his group is the development of user-friendly open-source bioinformatics tools that enable and empower researchers to analyze and share their own data.

His research has resulted in numerous publications and a long list of freely available proteomics software. In 2015 he received the Meltzer Award for Excellent Young Researchers at the University of Bergen, and in 2016 he was awarded the prestigious recruitment fellowship from the Bergen Research Foundation.
