The bioinformatics lab at the Technical University of Munich, TUM Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability is led by Prof. Dr. Dominik Grimm from the University of Applied Sciences Weihenstephan-Triesdorf.
Bioinformatics is a young interdisciplinary research area that develops computational and statistical tools to analyze, store, integrate and visualize biological and biomedical data. One of the main research areas of our group is the development and usage of novel computational tools and machine learning methods to gain a deeper understanding of the underlying genetic architecture of complex biological processes and phenotypes. In addition, we are interested in developing efficient pipelines and applications to process and analyze Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) data. Further, we develop modern cloud-based applications and databases to simplify the analysis, storage, retrieval and visualization of diverse and complex biological and biomedical data.
