Algorithmen der Bioinformatik

Welcome to the Algorithms in Bioinformatics lab.

The main focus of our lab is on developing new and advanced algorithms for bioinformatics. Here is a short list of our current main research interests:

  • Microbiome analysis and simulation
  • Long read analysis
  • Phylogenetic networks and trees
  • Models, algorithms, software and complexity

For more details, see the research section, our publications and our software.
