  • deep learning
  • genome analysis
  • GPI-anchor deficiencies
Our research aims at deepening the understanding of genome biology and advancing personalized medicine. Besides our own fields of interest we engage in collaborative research projects with the department of Human Genetics, the Excellence Cluster Immunosensation and with basically any lab on the campus that has challenging high dimensional data. In most of our projects we are using artificial intelligence in the analysis of big biomedical data sets and we are trying to understand what the machines are doing.
