Great News:

The two trainers of our upcoming epigenomics workshop 'DNA Methylation Data Analysis' got their research work published in Nature Genetics.

Dr. Helene Kretzmer and Dr. Christian Otto identified differentially methylated regions in Burkitt and follicular lymphoma using exactly the bisulfite sequencing data analysis method that they will teach in the workshop.


Workshop:

22-25 November 2016 in Leipzig, Germany: DNA Methylation Data Analysis

Publication:

Kretzmer et al.: 'DNA methylome analysis in Burkitt and follicular lymphomas identifies differentially methylated regions linked to somatic mutation and transcriptional control', Nature Genetics (2015)


Helene Kretzmer     Dr. Helene Kretzmer (University Leipzig) is working on DNA methylation analyses using NGS since 2011. She is responsible for the bioinformatics analysis of the MMML-Seq study of the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC).
 
Christian Otto     Dr. Christian Otto (CCR Bio-IT) is one of the developers of bisulfite read mapping tool segemehl and is an expert on implementing efficient algorithms for NGS data analysis.
