Reseach focus Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics

The “Bioinformatics and Computational Genomics” group focuses on developing and applying computational approaches to better understanding the immune functions, with a particular focus on the contribution of epigenetic alterations to these pathophysiological conditions by analyzing samples from cohort studies using whole-genome epigenetic profiling, novel single-cell technologies and systems genetics approaches. The ultimate goal is to develop tailored therapeutic strategies based on detailed molecular stratification of disease sub-entities, an important step towards individualized medicine.
