The ABI group focuses on the development of novel algorithms and data structures for problems in the analysis of biomedical mass data. In particular, the group is interested in developing mathematical models for analyzing large genomic sequences, especially in the context of next generation sequencing (NGS), and data derived from mass spectrometry experiments, for example for detecting differential expression of proteins between different conditions (e.g., healthy and diseased). The developed algorithms and data structures are all integrated into the open-source software libraries SeqAn and OpenMS.
The main task of the Algorithmic Bioinformatics group in the MARINA project is to develop analysis pipelines for the robust quantitative analysis of the proteomics, metabolomics, and transcriptomics data sets generated by our project partners and integration of these quantitative omics data into one or more comprehensive databases.
