Center for Computational and Theoretical Biology


The capability to evolve is a hallmark of all biological systems. Reconstructing evolutionary history and unraveling underlying mechanisms is the main interest of my group. Currently, we are focusing on three different levels, namely proteins, transcriptomes and genomes. The common denominator of our projects is the use of computational and statistical methods to analyze large-scale data with the aim to understand how biological systems change over time.
