Professor for Applied Bioinformatics
Center for Bioinformatics Tübingen, Quantitative Biology Center, Dept. of Computer Science & Faculty of Medicine, University of Tübingen
One area of research of the group is the analysis of biological high-throughput data, particularly proteomics, metabolomics, and lipidomics data, for which we have been developing a wide range of algorithms implemented in our software framework OpenMS. Another application area is immunology, where we develop methods for vaccine design and apply these methods in translational and personalized medicine. The third research area is structural bioinformatics where our current focus is on computer-aided drug design and drug repositioning.
Current Research Topics
- Computational mass spectrometry (proteomics, metabolomics, lipidomics) OpenMS
