Rolf Apweiler is joint associate director of EMBL-EBI[11][12] with Ewan Birney.[13]


Apweiler gained his PhD in Biochemistry from Heidelberg University.[14]


Apweiler has been working on the Swiss-Prot[15] protein sequence database since 1987, and in 1994 he became leader of the Swiss-Prot group. He has been joint head of the Protein and Nucleotide Data (PANDA) Group since 2007. The PANDA group is involved in several international collaborations like the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) Proteomics Standards Initiative. Apweiler is a member of the Nomenclature Committee of IUBMB, the FlyBase advisory board, the committee of the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) and the advisory board of the Human Proteome Resource (HPR).

Apweiler is an editor of the FEBS Journal and a section editor of BMC Bioinformatics and has published more than 200 papers.[16][17][18][19]
