The Team

mixOmics can be considered as the collective effort of a group of people, including the mixOmics core team and several contributors. The project started with Prof  Philippe Besse, head of the Plateforme Biostatistique at the Institut de Mathématiques de Toulouse, Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France. Since late 2008 a part of the project migrated to the southern hemisphere to Australia.

The team is now collaborating between Toulouse and Brisbane.
