The main focus of our lab is on developing new and advanced algorithms for bioinformatics. To find out more about our research, please see our list of publications and our list of talks.
Here is a short list of our current main research interests:
Phylogenetic trees and networks - Development of new algorithms for computing and drawing phyogenetic trees and networks. New methods are implemented in the programs SplitsTree and Dendroscope.
Microbiome analysis - Development of new algorithms for analysing shotgun metagenomic data. New methods are implemented in the programs MEGAN and MeTical.
Sequence alignment - Development of new algorithms and software for sequence alignment, in particular in the context of metagenome analysis. Resulting programs are DIAMOND, MALT and Ella.
