Dr. Helene KretzmerGroup Leader
Helene did her PhD in Bioinformatics at the University of Leipzig, where she focused on the development of methods for DNA methylation sequencing analysis and their application on cancer data in the framework of the International Cancer Genome Consortium. Her main interest is the establishment and stabilization of cell fates. Currently, she is studying how epigenetic factors regulate early mammalian embryonic development using scRNAseq and WGBS data and is also analyzing the epigenetic footprint of cancer to better understand the underlying molecular mechanisms. Helene joined Alex's group in late 2017.
