Computational Systems Biology of Infections and Antimicrobial-Resistant Pathogens

Welcome to the Draeger Research Group!

The Dräger working group was founded in July 2018 and since then has been dedicated to computer-aided systems biology with a focus on infections and antimicrobial-resistant pathogens. The research focuses of the group cover all steps from the biological phenomenon to its simulation in the computer. The work includes the reconstruction of biological systems, their mathematical modeling, the standardization of these models, as well as the development of specialized software solutions and the application of methods of machine learning. A primary goal is to derive model-driven new hypotheses to combat increasing antibiotic resistance systematically.
