Department of Computational Molecular Biology
Head: Martin Vingron
The Department of Computational Molecular Biology comprises scientists coming from various backgrounds, ranging from mathematics, statistics and computer science via physics to biology and genetics. They combine theory and methods development with collaborative data analysis projects, and pursue biological questions through a combination of computational and experimental approaches. Methods from mathematics,
statistics, and computer science form the basis for the bioinformatics analyses performed. Projects may either approach biological questions through theoretical analysis, or may be collaborative projects, where frequent interaction and feedback between experimentalists and theoreticians drive the work forward.
