Michael Seifert

Michael Seifert studied bioinformatics from 2001 to 2006 at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and completed his studies with an internship at BASF in Ludwigshafen and an external diploma thesis on Hidden Markov Models for the analysis of tumor expression profiles at the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin. From 2006 to 2012, Michael Seifert was working at the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) in Gatersleben to develop computational methods for the analysis of DNA microarray data, for which he obtained a doctoral degree in computational biology in 2010 from the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg. From 2011 to 2013, Michael Seifert also joined the Department of Biology of the École Normale Supérieure (IBENS) in Paris to work on a project on computational epigenetics as a visiting scientist of the Arabidopsis Epigenetics and Epigenomics group. In May 2012, Michael Seifert started to develop computational methods for cancer genomics in the Cellular Networks and Systems Biology group at the Biotechnology Center (BIOTEC) of the Technical University Dresden. Since May 2013, Michael Seifert is extending these developments in the Department of Innovative Methods of Computing at the Center for Information Services and High Performance Computing (ZIH) of the Technical University Dresden.
