Postdoc / Bioinformatician
The Division of Theoretical Bioinformatics (Head: Prof. Roland Eils) at the German Cancer Research Center and the BioQuant Center are developing computer-assisted methods for interpreting complex genomic data. We perform data analysis and interpretation for several cancer genomics projects within the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC) and the Heidelberg Center for Personalized Oncology (dkfz-hipo). The analysis of these datasets has allowed tremendous progress in understanding the mutational landscape and pathogenetic mechanisms of the investigated tumor types (Jones et al., Nature, 2011; Richter et al., Nat. Genet., 2012; Weischenfeldt et al., Cancer Cell, 2013; Jones et al., Nat. Genet., 2013; Jäger et al., Cell, 2013). However, most of the current analyses relied only on a single data type and made only limited use of the comprehensive molecular characterization of the tumors. Integrative analysis of multiple data types and mathematical modeling will result in a deeper understanding of cancer-specific deregulations and the crosstalks between genetic and epigenetic components.
