Co-founder, Chief Software Architect
Jukka Matilainen has a Master of Science degree in Computer Science from Helsinki University of Technology. His thesis dealt with tools for probabilistic modelling in bioinformatics software systems. He worked on the specification and design on a large IT platform for systems biology together with Jussi and Christophe, before founding Euformatics.
Jukka has a strong experience in systems biology and in modelling of biological systems. He has also a strong experience in software development that he gained while creating several tools and libraries for the systems biology platform. Jukka has co-authored scientific articles in systems biology.
Christophe Roos started his career as a researcher studying the interaction of genes during germ line stem cell development. Bioinformatics nevertheless followed him since the ’80s when he tested the first Swissprot database versions and sequence analysis software packages. He initiated bioinformatics training at the University of Helsinki, and later worked together with Jussi and Jukka on a large IT platform for systems biology.
Christophe holds Master of Science degrees in Genetics, and Mathematics & Chemistry from the University of Helsinki as well as a PhD in Molecular Biology from the Université Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg. He has worked as a lecturer at several universities and authored and co-authored a number of scientific articles in a wide range of journals. He is very well connected and versed in several fields and languages. His specific professional interest is to facilitate translational research through the application of a formalism borrowed from the exact sciences and through a better use of information technology.
