Shut down of IBIS

  • After more than 18 years of successful research, the Institute of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology was closed on 30th September 2019. The scientific work of the remaining groups will proceed at the same place, but with new affiliation. The ‚Systems Metabolomics‘ group of Gabi Kastenmüller is now part of the Institute of Computational Biology (ICB). The group of Andreas Ruepp, now ‚Biocuration for Digital Health‘, has moved to the Institute of Experimental Genetics (IEG).

    We thank all recent and former PIs and staff members for making IBIS a great place of lively bioinformatic research, which led to many internationally visible scientific highlights including but not limited to groundbreaking work in fungal, plant, and microbial genomics, the setup of FunCat, a highly cited functional annotation scheme, and the publication of the first genome-wide association study on metabolomics scale … Thank you!

Our Focus

  • The scientists at the Institute of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology (IBIS) analyse and interpret biological data to capture information on the etiology and progression of human diseases. Their focus is on qualitative and quantitative modeling, on the interconnection of metabolic profiles with genetic variance, on the systematic interpretation of high throughput data and on the systems biology of small molecules.
