Chair of Bioinformatics

Welcome to the Department of Bioinformatics

About us

Our department of bioinformatics is already by its name and by the composition of its members highly interdisciplinary (scientists with medical and biological training, computer science, mathematics, as well as with a background in chemistry, pharmacology) and as we require for new insights large amounts of data (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics).

Major topics we currently analyze are in systems biology modeling different tissues; protein and RNA structure, regulation and sequence; organisms and interactions, in the analysis of genome, transcriptome and metabolome data; regarding infection biology, e.g. human-fungal infection, graduate students 3D infects, plant-pathogen interactions; in cancer (lung and others) and cardiovascular research (platelets; lncRNAs and kinases in cardiomyocytes); regarding prokaryotic metabolism and adaptation; neurobiological activity and image analysis.

We collaborate with most groups of the biocenter as well as with the faculty of biology (including ecology where there are systems and species data), and numerous chairs in medical faculty. Further collaborations are also with computer sciences (databanks, e-learning, development of algorithms), chemistry (drug design), mathematics (differential equations), physicists, (systems biology).
