Lab Profile

Bioinformatics Group

The regulation of gene expression is controlled by multiple mechanisms, such as the sequence-specific binding of transcription factors to DNA, epigenetic signals and a dynamic chromatin state. An unbiased understanding of these processes requires access to large-scale experiments and the capacity to analyse genome-wide data. We develop protocols and tools to generate, process and interpret

  • epigenomics
  • gene regulation
  • ChIP-seq: standardisation and parallelisation
  • chromatin analysis: standardised workflows and visualisation tools
