Omics-/Data-based Bioinformatics

Director: Prof. Dr. Björn Usadel

Whole genomes and transcriptomes of various economically relevant plant species obtained from sequencing results in large amounts of data that have to be processed and analysed. The group develops algorithms and tools and implements machine learning to investigate and visualize big data. Finally, to facilitate public data access, the group designs and hosts databases with user-friendly interfaces. Combinations of theoretical and experimental research are used to identify and validate novel candidate genes involved in improved yield and plant robustness against environmental stressors.

The group focuses on five research areas:
