What we do

We develop concepts and algorithmic tools for the analysis of large-scale biological and clinical data. We participate in many genome-wide association studies (GWAS) for human traits and have a particular interest in the integration of genotypic and complex phenotypic datasets (such as gene expression or metabolomics). A key approach is the reduction of complexity through modular and network analysis. A complementary direction of our research pertains to relatively small genetic networks, whose components are well known.
