George Rosenberger


George is a PhD student in the group of Prof. Dr. Ruedi Aebersold at the Institute of Molecular Systems Biology, ETH Zürich. The main focus of his work is development of algorithms and software for SWATH-MS.

Xiao Liang


Xiao Liang is a PhD candidate from International Max Planck Research School for Computational Biology and Scientific Computing (IMPRS-CBSC). Her main scientific interests include mass spectrometry data analysis pipeline development and algorithms for protein inference/quantification and statistical validation. Currently she is working on Mischwald Bayesian inference engine for comprehensive protein inference.

Eugen Netz


Eugen Netz is a PhD student in the Biomolecular Interactions group led by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Oliver Kohlbacher at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology in Tübingen. The main objective of his current work is to develop a workflow to elucidate protein structures and interactions using distance constraints from chemical cross-linking mass spectrometry (XL-MS) experiments.

Hannes Röst


My name is Hannes Röst and I am a bioinformatics researcher interested
in complex molecular phenomena which I investigate using multiple
computational and statistical methods. In my research, I aim to use
computational tools and develop novel algorithms to better understand
biological systems at the molecular level. Specifically I am
interested in developing novel methods in mass spectrometry to better
and more accurately identify and quantify proteins and metabolites and
I have been working on targeted methods including SWATH-MS.

Tjeerd Dijkstra


My interests are machine learning and computational biology, in particular proteomics and neuroscience. I spilt my time evenly between the protein evolution group at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology and the Cognitive Neurology group at the University Clinic in Tubingen,

Knut Reinert


Head of the group at FU Berlin. My research is influenced by the training I received as an algorithmicist at the Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science in Saarbrücken, Germany and by my subsequent research as a senior scientist at Celera Genomics in Rockville, MD, USA. I aim to enable translational research in computationally based life sciences by removing existing (communication) gaps between theoretical algorithmicists, statisticians, programmers, and users in the biomedical field.I obtained my Diploma in Computer Science from Saarbrücken University and my PhD from the Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science in Saarbrücken.
