Prof. Stephan Ossowski

Computational Genomics

Group Leader

Stephan Ossowski

has obtained a PhD in Computational Biology from the Max-Planck Institute Germany in 2010 for his work on the computational analysis of next generation sequencing (NGS) data, genome re-sequencing and population genetics. In 2008 he published the first whole-genome analysis of a plant genome using NGS technology and has since worked on developing novel computational and statistical methods for NGS analysis. After a short stay at the MIT in Boston he has started as group leader at the Centre for Genomic Regulation in Barcelona. His lab developed experimental and computational methods for medical genomics and epigenomics, with a strong focus on NGS applications in clinical diagnostics and precision medicine.

In 2017 Stephan Ossowski became Professor for Medical Genomics at the Institute for Medical Genetics and Applied Genomics at the University of Tübingen. He is currently interested in developing novel methods in the fields of rare disease and cancer diagnostics, tumor evolution, cancer susceptibility, liquid biopsy, antibiotic resistance detection and Nanopore sequencing.
