About Timo

Timo Sachsenberg is a PostDoc in the group of Oliver Kohlbacher. As a researcher and teaching assistant, he taught computational mass spectrometry to life-scientists and bioinformaticians in more than 20 de.NBI/ELIXIR training events. He is a lead developer of OpenMS and author of several mass spectrometry tools and developed RNPxl, the first database search engine for protein-RNA cross-linking.


The Kohlbacher lab was established in the year 2000 and currently consists of three different groups at Universität Tübingen (Applied Bioinformatics), the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology (Biomolecular Interactions), and the University Hospital Tübingen (Translational Bioinformatics) working in different areas of bioinformatics and medical informatics. The Chair for Applied Bioinformatics at Universität Tübingen focuses on research analysis of omics data (genomics, proteomics, metabolomics), structural bioinformatics, and computational immunomics. The team works closely with experimental labs to develop and apply novel methods and algorithms to solve problems in the life sciences. Besides, the lab has a long history of providing high-quality research software.
