Research Focus

The Computational Structural Biology group explores new software-based methods to stretch the boundaries of what image processing and machine learning can currently do for structural biology.

Methodologically, the focus is on object localization and segmentation of cryo-electron microscopy data sets. In addition, the group is working on the automation of existing workflows and pipelines. The group supports other scientists in the department with projects involving image- and data-analysis.

These methods enable scientists to gain insights from experiments that cannot be obtained by manual analysis, or only with a great deal of time.
