Bachelor thesis projects 2022

+++ see a more detailed description of the projects here +++

Bachelor thesis topics could cover any of the following topics

  • single-cell omics data analysis and integration
  • machine-learning approaches to multi-omics integration
  • applications to regulatory genomics in cancer and disease
  • biological networks

The focus can be more on genomic data analysis (R or Python), machine-learning developments (Python), construction of biological networks, e.g. regulatory networks, or a mix of those depending on your interests!

some examples of BA thesis from past years

  • Comparison of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes regarding COVID19 comorbidities.
  • Weighted random forest regression for the prediction ofgene regulatory networks.
  • Genomic Tinder: Using a generative adversarial network (GAN) to find best matching pairs of scRNAseq and scATACseq data.
  • Autoencoder-based integration of multiomics single-cell data.
  • Causal networks of epigenetic regulation.
  • Defining Schizophrenia-specific DNA Methylation Signatures and Investigating their Correlation with Comorbid Diseases.
