Role within GHGA: Team member, OC- Member
Institution: Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum
I studied Bioinformatics in Germany and continued to do my Dr. rer. nat. in the same field at the University of Freiburg, where I worked on RNA-protein interactions. During this time, I came into close contact with the open-source project Galaxy and a world to share software and data in life science. I was soon fascinated by the idea to provide a service to help people with their research and development.
At the GHGA I took the role as a bioinformatician and scientific workflow engineer to pursue this vision. I am responsible to implement tools and standardize workflows that will soon be part of the GHGA to assist with projects in cancer and rare diseases.
