The Applied Bioinformatics working group in the Medical Bioinformatics research area at the MPC is headed by Dr. Julian Uszkoreit. In close collaboration with experimental research groups we develop new methods and algorithms and apply them mainly to mass spectrometric data from proteomics to answer questions from the life sciences. Our group uses current methods of software development and deployment (e.g. workflow environments, cloud computing, deep learning, containerization, orchestration), as well as the high-performance hardware equipment of the MPC and the PRODI research building to address project-specific questions but also to solve fundamental problems of proteomics. All our tools and methods are made available to the community in a user-friendly way and as open source.
Our current projects include:
In addition to the research activities, members of the working group operate the scientific server infrastructure of the Medical Proteome Center.
