Harald Barsnes

Harald is an Associate Professor at the Department of Biomedicine and a group leader at the Computational Biology Unit at the Department of Informatics, both at the University of Bergen.

The main focus of the Barsnes group is the development of user-friendly open-source bioinformatics tools that enable and empower researchers to analyze and share their own data.

In 2015 Barsnes received the Meltzer Award for Excellent Young Researchers at the University of Bergen, and in 2016 obtained funding from the Research Council of Norway as a Young Research Talent. Later that same year he was also awarded the prestigious recruitment fellowship from the Bergen Research Foundation.
