Major Research Interests

The Statistical Bioinformatics group of the department of Medical Statistics is developing statistical applications at methods for biomedical research. We are closely working together with other biostatisticians/bioinformaticists as well as clinical and biological researchers. The focus of the group is the development of methods and tools to analyse biomedical data and to reconstruct biological networks. These methods are implemented mostly in the statistical computing environment of R.
