Christoph is a bioinformatician interested in the effects of variation in people. He tries to integrate proteomics and underlying genomic, transcriptomic variation to increase the understanding of person to person variation and their contribution to different phenotypes.
My research interests mainly focus on improving computational methods for the analysis of mass spectrometry data. My Master's project focused on imperfect matching of spectra to identify unexpected modification and sequence variation. My PhD project and work for GENCODE will be based around proteogenomic genome annotation and characterisation, as well as looking further into post-translational modifications and sequence variation and their conservation.
