Algorithmic aspects of bioinformatics and breeding informatics in animal and plant breeding

The research field of breeding informatics is the connection between classical breeding research and informatic concepts. Those concepts are combined from a theoretical and practical point of view. Huge amounts of data (Big Data) from animal science as well as from plant science is used.

Therefore the following topics and areas can be defined as research field for breeding informatics:

  • Basic concepts and methods of bioinformatics/breeding informatics

  • DNA Sequencing

  • Variant calling

  • Genomic selection and prediction

  • Signal detection in DNA sequences

  • Genome analyses

  • Analysis of multi-omics data (Genomics, Transcriptomics, Proteomics, Metabolomics)

  • Databases in bioinformatics
