Understanding regulatory genomics in diseases.

Welcome to the Biomedical Genomics Group @ Health Data Science Unit !

We are part of the BioQuant Center and Medical Faculty Heidelberg. We are working on understanding gene (de)regulation in disease, in particular cancer, mental disorders and infection.

We develop novel methods to integrate large scale genomics datasets, using statistical and machine-learning approaches. We focus in particular on epigenomics data and single-cell approaches.

We are hiring a postdoc in computational single-cell multiomics for a 3-year DFG project; check the description here

We are always interested in hosting bachelor/master/rotation students! Do not hesitate to contact use if you are interested in topics such as

  • computational gene regulation
  • epigenetics
  • single-cell data
  • machine-learning
