The European Molecular Biology Laboratory's European Bioinformatics Institute said this week that Graham Cameron will resign from his position as associate director. Rolf Apweiler and Ewan Birney will take over as associate directors.
Apweiler's team has focused on protein and proteomics databases. He leads the UniProt Consortium, which develops the protein database UniProt, and he also leads EBI's contribution to the Gene Ontology. He was president of the Human Proteomics Organization between 2007 and 2008.
Birney is one of the founders of the Ensembl genome browser and has oversight for all nucleotide databases at EBI.
