Long-read sequencing - Part I

An introduction to long-read sequencing.

We are looking for Masters Students!

We are currently looking for Master’s students in the field of Bioinformatics for the topic of Epigenetic footprints in cell-free DNA sequencing data Cell-free DNA (cfDNA) carries epigenetic information of distal tissues and organs. Different characteristics of cfDNA are increasingly being used in the diagnostics of genetic diseases and the monitoring of cancer. We discern epigenetic signatures such as transcription binding site accessibility and DNase hypersensitivity sites from cfDNA-sequencing data and infer the contribution of different cell / tissue types to cfDNA.
