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.

Software & Resources


 easyGWAS is a novel web- and cloud platform for performing, analysing and comparing  genome-wide association studies (GWAS).

The AraGWAS Catalog

The AraGWAS Catalog is a public and manually curated database for standardised GWAS results for Arabidopsis thaliana.


AraPheno is a central and public repository of high-quality Arabidopsis thaliana phenotypes.

Software & Methods

Software and Methods developed by the group can be found and downloaded at our Github repository.

Dominik receives the excellent teaching award

Dominik receives the excellent teaching award

Recently, the student council of the TUM Campus Straubing (TUMCS) for Biotechnology and Sustainability awarded the prize for excellent teaching for the first time to Prof. Dr. Dominik Grimm. A “Tree of Teaching” behind the new “Sustainable Chemistry” teaching and research building facing the Danube is dedicated to him. The student council had already chosen Prof. Grimm as the winner last year, and now the students congratulated him with a sign next to a newly planted silver willow after completion of the new building and the adjacent green space.
