Full member of the DoktoratsKolleg RNA Biology since 2010
PhD students and their thesis projects:
Stefan Hammer: Design of RNA sequences with predefined conformational and kinetic properties
DK RNA Alumni:
Stefan Badelt: “Control of RNA function by conformational design”
Florian Eggenhofer: “Conservation and interaction of RNA in regulatory networks”
Joerg Fallmann: “RNA-protein interactions in RNA decay”
Peter Kerpedjiev: “Coarse grained 3D RNA folding”
My scientific interests fit mostly under the computational biology umbrella. Much of my work focuses on RNA Bioinformatics, the most visible part perhaps being the Vienna RNA Package for prediction and comparison of RNA secondary structures, which my coworkers and I have developed for over 15 years.
For a description of the individual projects in our group see the TBI Research page, or browse though my list of publications. Our preprint server contains working papers and downloadable preprints for most papers for the really curious.
