SNiPA is a joint project of the Institute of Computational Biology (ICB) at the Helmholtz Zentrum München and the Bioinformatics Core Facility at the Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar.

SNiPA was mainly developed and is being maintained by Dr. Matthias Arnold and Dr. Johannes Raffler, both members of the ICB (former IBIS) Metabolomics group. As of 2020, Nick Lehner joined the project to update and maintain SNiPA.

We thank all research groups that generated the data integrated into SNiPA (see the documentation for a full list of references).
Also, we thank the developers of SNAP at the Broad Institute for their inspiring work. We hope that they will find our tool just as useful as SNAP has been to us in the past.
