The Swiss-Prot group is directed by Prof Ioannis Xenarios and Dr Lydie Bougueleret. The coordination board composed of Dr Sylvain Poux, head of the annotation department, Dr Alan Bridge, head of the enhancement and automation department, Dr Nicole Redaschi, head of the software development department and the two directors is in charge of the definition of the development strategy of the group as well as of the daily operations. One of the major strengths of the group is its annotation capacity served by expert staff scientists and supported by a dedicated team of software developers and bioinformaticians.
