Projects

Applications of non-negative matrix factorization to single-cell and bulk genomic datasets

We use epigenomics datasets to characterize neuroblastoma subtypes

Cohort stratification and chromatin feature extraction using neural networks.

OpenLab Epigenomics

The Epigenomics OpenLab is a joined effort of the DKFZ and Medical Faculty to support groups in the processing of their epigenomics datasets. We offer assistance and expertise, as well as access to our processing pipelines, and are happy to host external members to guide them through the analysis.

Please contact us if you are looking for assistance.

Teaching

Members of the lab are involved in teaching in the Molecular Biotechnology Bachelor and Master Program at the university Heidelberg.
