Professor for Algorithms in Bioinformatics

Department of Computer Science, University of Tübingen

The mission of my lab is to develop and implement new models, approaches and algorithms and software for answering questions in molecular biology. We work closely with biologists and medical researchers to understand their computational needs.

Current Research Topics

  1. Ultra-fast protein sequence alignment - DIAMOND
  2. Metagenome analysis - MEGAN
  3. Metagenome alignment - MALT
  4. Pathogen identification - MetaScope
  5. Phylogeny - SplitsTree and Dendroscope
  6. Metagenome simulation - MetaSim
