Research Focus

I focus on the analysis and identification of plant gene families. While the main focus is on dicotyledonous and eudicotyledons, additional species will be included as well. Within this project, I will use the Mercator4 and MapMan framework for functional annotation to allow complete classification of plant genes. Information from the underlying protein sub-families will be leveraged to identify plant gene sub-families in genomes without prior gene calling to enable studying evolutionary aspects and fast full genome comparisons.
