The Genome Informatics Group contributed two talks and three posters to this year's German Conference on Bioinformatics in Jena.
Johannes presented "Building and Documenting Bioinformatics Workflows with Python-based Snakemake" and Marianna spoke about "Designing q-unique DNA sequences with integer linear programs and Euler tours in de Bruijn graphs". Slides of Johannes' talk can be found here.
Dominik presented his poster "An Automation-Based View on Error-Tolerant Pattern Matching with Backward Search" providing a new perspective on classical Backward Search.
Corinna's poster “An Efficient Data Structure for Pangenomes” shows how to represent the differences and commonalities among the genomic sequences of related species in a memory-efficient and meaningful way.
Marcel's poster “Alignment of flowgrams to strings” describes his work on automatic error-correction for DNA sequencing technologies that use so-called “flowgrams” as an intermediate representation of DNA.
Corinna and Marcel share 2nd Place of Best Poster Award for their posters presented.
