University of Tübingen (EKUT)


Eberhard Karls University Tübingen (EKUT) is one of the leading German Universities with both, a long academic tradition and excellent reputation in research. It is consistently ranked among the top ten of German universities and has a strong focus on biomedical sciences.

EKUT was the first university in Germany, and one of the first world-wide, to offer dedicated interdisciplinary curricula in Bioinformatics. In 2001 EKUT was awarded one of five DFG-funded centres of excellence in Bioinformatics. The Centre for Bioinformatics Tübingen (ZBIT) consists of over twenty partners from five different departments of EKUT and on-campus Max Planck Institutes. Main tasks: EKUT mainly contributes to the analysis of high-throughput omics data in WP9 and WP10 where we are responsible for three key contributions: (1) the processing and analysis of mass-spectrometric metabolomics data, metabolite quantification and identification. (2) the integration of transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics data in a central data warehouse. (3) the analysis of the time-resolved omics data in the context of biological networks.
