The Baumbach group at the University of Southern Denmark

Prof. Dr. Jan Baumbach

I'm chairing the Experimental Bioinformatics lab at the Technical University of Munich since January 2018. In part time, I am also leading the Computational BioMedicine group at the University of Southern Denmark (since October 2012). Since December 2018, I am also director of the IT Weihenstephan. Before, I have been head of the Computational Systems Biology group at the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and postdoctoral fellow at the University of California at Berkeley in the Algorithms group of Richard Karp. In 2008, I received a PhD degree from Bielefeld University where I worked in the Genome Informatics group of Jens Stoye and the Algorithms and Statistics for Systems Biology group of Sven Rahmann. During my studies I spent some time at the University of California at San Francisco in the lab of Tom Ferrin and at Rothamsted Research in the lab of Chris Rawlings.

Afsaneh Mohammadnejad

I am a PhD student at research unit of Epidemiology, Biostatistics and Biodemography at the University of Southern Denmark and a member of the Computational Biology group since March 2018. Currently, I am involved in developing methods for multivariate analysis of OMICS data. I hold a MSc degree in Applied Mathematics from SDU and I did my master thesis on GWAS

Alexander Gulliver Bjørnholt Grønning

I started as a PhD student in the Computational Biology group at the University of Southern Denmark in February 2017. I am involved in work where deep learning techniques are applied for analysis of different types of biological sequences. The goal is to find regions that have specific biological relevance. I have a bachelor’s and master’s degree in biomedicine from the University of Southern Denmark.

Anders Christiansen

I am a medical doctor from Odense University Hospital. Since 2010 I have been in specialist training to become a respiratory physician. In 2014 I have started my PhD. The focus of my PhD is small airways disease in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary disease. I am doing this at the University Hospital department of respiratory medicine at OUH with Prof. Jørgen Vestbo, together with Prof. Jan Baumbach and his computational biology group. We seek to find biomarkers for small airways disease in COPD, in physiological measurement, exhaled metabolites, blood samples and imaging data.

Jesper Lund

I'm a PhD student in the Computational Biology group at the University of Southern Denmark since April 2017. Currently, I am involved in developing computational methods for analyzing epigenome-wide association studies and genome-wide association studies on next-generation sequencing data. Before, I was an undergraduate student at the University of Southern Denmark where I studied computer science.jesper.

Maria Louise Elkjaer

I'm a PhD student affiliated with the Computational Biology group at the University of Southern Denmark and the Neurological Research Group of Zsolt Illes at Odense University Hospital since February 2017. Currently, I am involved in exploring the transcriptome and the DNA methylation signatures of human brain lesions from multiple sclerosis patients. Before, I studied biomedicine at the University of Southern Denmark and during my education I worked in Austria at Institute of Neurology, Medical University of Vienna and in England at Division of Brain Sciences, Imperial College, London.

Philipp Weber

I am a PhD student in the Computational Biology group at the University of Southern Denmark since September 2017. Earlier in 2017 I obtained my master’s degree in bioinformatics from the University of Tübingen. In my PhD project I focus on developing new methods for the processing and analysis of breath and biogas data with the help of deep neural network architectures. My research interest also includes the development of new approaches for detection and treatment of cancer in a personalized setting.

Simon Larsen

I am a PhD student in the Computational Biology group at the University of Southern Denmark since September 2017. In 2016 I obtained my master’s degree in computer science from the University of Southern Denmark. While working on my master’s thesis, I did a half-year stay at the Jurisica Lab at the Ontario Cancer Institute, where I worked with alignment of large biological networks. My primary research interests include biological network analysis, evolutionary algorithms and high performance computing.

Tobias Frisch

Since March 2017 I am a PhD student at the Computational Biology group at the University of Southern Denmark. In my work I collaborate with the group of Prof. Zsolt Illés from the neurology department at Odense University Hospital. I am generally interested in un/supervised machine learning and network analysis approaches to deal with OMICS data. Herby I am especially interested in neurological diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and focus on the data emerging from our collaboration with the OUH. I am holding a MSc degree in Bioinformatics from Freie Universität Berlin and a BSc degree in Bioinformatics from Saarland University, Saarbrücken.

Weilong Li

I'm a PhD student in research unit of Epidemiology, Biostatistics & Biodemography in University of Southern Denmark, and a member of the Computational Biology group since October 2016. Currently, I am involved in data analysis and software development for epigenome-wide association study. I was master student majoring in applied mathematics at SDU, and did my master thesis on GWAS simulation with twin design.
