Comparative Genomics


Our research focuses on Comparative and Population Genomics. The goal is to disentangle selective and neutral forces that shape genomes. Recently, we focused on the analysis and integration of single cell transcriptomes. Overall, we seek to apply the principles of genome evolution to

  • Computational Tools


    We develop tools and pipelines for single cell RNA-seq analysis. more

  • Regulatory Evolution


    We want to understand how regulatory elements in the genome evolve. To this end we combine genetic, epigenetic and gene expression data and analyse them from an evolutionary perspective. more

  • Population Genomics

    With genome scale re-sequencing data allow us to tackle new questions f.e. the detection of life history traits such as sex biases in mating and revisit older questions such as searching for selective sweeps. more
