Major Research Interests

The Department of Medical Bioinformatics is developing methods in Statistical Bioinformatics as well as Systems Medicine for biomedical research. We are collaborating in biomedical research projects and working in interdisciplinary consortia on the analysis of large heterogeneous high-throughput data-sets. There we apply mainly machine learning approaches as well as analysis and reconstruction methods for biological networks. The focus of the department is the development of methods and tools for the integrative analysis of large biomedical data-sets. These methods are implemented mostly in the statistical computing environment of R.
