What we do

Our group is located in the Department of Biomedicine (DBM) at the University of Basel. We collaborate with scientists from DBM on projects covering a broad spectrum of research topics, from cellular differentiation and evolutionary biology to the identification of a molecular basis for various human diseases. To do this, we focus on the analysis, interpretation and visualization of expression, epigenetic and genomic data, which are mainly derived from next-generation sequencing experiments.
