Research interests

Our work is summarized by a series of review articles providing a general introduction into computational epigenetics, discussing the challenges of epigenetic biomarker development as well as the analysis and interpretation of DNA methylation data, and outlining a roadmap for personalized medicine using patient-specific combination therapies

An introduction into our research has been published in MaxPlanckResearch, the popular science magazine of the Max Planck Society:
Spotting Cancer in the Genes (a German translation of the article is also available: Spurensuche an b÷sartigen Genen)
