In Feb. 2010, I moved to Peer Bork's group at the EMBL in Heidelberg, please see www.bork.embl.de/~zeller
2000 - 2006 Undergraduate training as a computational biologist at Tuebingen University from which I earned a Diplom in bioinformatics (Master's equivalent). There, I also worked as a student researcher in Daniel Huson's group
2003-2004 Undergraduate studies in biology and computer science at Uppsala University, Sweden
- Analysis of Whole-Genome Tiling Microarrays:
- Gene Finding:
- Inference of Alternative Splicing:
- Polymorphic Region Detection in A. thaliana:
- Detecting polymorphic regions in the A. thaliana genome using Hidden Markov Support Vector Machines has been my main focus within the array-based resequencing project. Polymorphic regions typically correspond to clusters of small polymorphisms (SNPs and indels), but also contain large deletions. As these types of polymorphisms are impossible or very difficult to identify with SNP calling methods, polymorphic region predictions ideally complement SNP calls.
