CZ Digitale Werkstatt: Virus Dynamics and Diagnostics (P3)

Welcome to the Websiote of the project "Virus Dynamics and Diagnostics (P3)" of the "Digitale Werkstatt" funded by the Carl-Zeiss Foundation 2019.


Principal (Co-)Investigators



In this project, new data analysis and learning methods will be developed to improve the diagnosis of known and unknown viruses and their interaction with other organisms.Potential data streams include sequences (genome and transcriptome of virus and host), images, and molecular spectra (mass spectra of virus and host). .The Böcker Group contributes novel methods (SIRIUS, CSI: FingerID) for gas chromatography and electron ionization mass-spectrometry. The Dittrich Group develops learning and classification methods based on dynamical reaction network models.
