Harald is a 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.
There are no Postdocs in the Barsnes Group at the moment.
Yehia got his M.Sc. in Bioinformatics from the University of Bergen. He is currently a PhD candidate in the Barsnes group focusing on web-based interactive visual analysis of omics data. He is main developer behind the CSF Proteome Resource – an online repository of mass spectrometry based proteomics experiments on human cerebrospinal fluid.
There are no master students in the Barsnes Group at the moment.
