We are interested in the study of complex systems in living organisms. Novel views augmenting the classical gene by gene approaches are required to overcome the engineered redundancies and combinatorial effects prevalent in higher eukaryotes. We therefore combine
focussed by biological studies in our laboratory and collaborations.
Highlights of our research include:
The Vienna Science Chair of Bioinformatics was founded 2005 on winning a five-year WWTF startup grant together with its partners. It now is a permanent chair embedded in the Dept of Biotechnology and was endowed by Boku University Vienna until 2013.
