We are a fresh, small bioinformatics group at the FSU Jena.
We focus on the development of algorithms and tools for handling large sequencing data sets. We apply our computational methods to de novo genome and transcriptome assembly, the comprehensive analysis of RNA-Seq data, and the identification of pathogens such as viruses.
We strive to combine well-established and novel computational approaches to analyze and visualize large amounts of short- and long-read sequencing data.
Bats are impressive! Our manuscript dealing with the RNA-Seq analysis of cells from a small bat species, Myotis daubentonii, got accepted in iScience! We investigated the transcriptome response to a viral infection or stimulation with interferon (IFN) at two time points. Many thanks to our partners at the Institute for Virology, JLU Giessen.26.

Our manuscript about a new Chlamydia species isolated from a red-shouldered hawk got published in Systematic and Applied Microbiology! We are pleased that we were able to help with data evaluation and assembly to ultimately define this new species.
