Our research focusses are in the domain of proteomics and genomics. Proteomics using high-end mass spectrometry and bioinformatics to identify protein biomarkers and gain insight into tumor development. Tools to investigate protein modifications with special interest in histone protein modifications in the context of epigenomic regulation are being developed and applied.
In genomics we focus on epigenome analysis (eg DNA methylation), transcriptome analysis using massive parallel sequencing approaches. We have a special interest in single cell analysis and isolation using e.g. laser capture microdissection and other single cell isolation technologies.
