Intro

Konrad Förstner I am a researcher in the field of in bioinformatics / computational biology / systems biology. My methodical focus is the integration and interpretation of large data sets - mainly generated using high-throughput sequencing technologies but also text corpora - with the aim to translate them into biological and medical insights. As part of that I am advocating open science with all its facetes (data, publications, source code of research software, educational resources, publication metrics etc.) and am active in several groups/communites promoting this.
