The development of novel high-throughput sequencing technologies allows the determination of the complete set of RNA-transcripts expressed under a given condition. Accurate and efficient computational methods are needed to uncover the full potential of the immense amount of data that is generated by these technologies. Our research group focuses on the analyses of transcriptome data using modern „Machine Learning“ algorithms, providing a better insight into the relation of genetic information and phenotypic traits of individuals. more

Ultrathin oxide films on metal substrates: an interesting materials’ combination

Fritz Haber Institute of the Max Planck Society Freund, Hans-Joachim; Nilius, Niklas; Risse, Thomas; Shaikhutdinov, Shamil; Sterrer, Martin
Properties of metal substrate supported oxide films are described on the basis of simple concepts known from semiconductor physics, in particular, with respect to the way these systems influence the electronic structure of species adsorbed onto them. We discuss consequences on the reactivity of the specific system. The examples have been chosen from the field of heterogeneous catalysis and demonstrate how one may be able to design systems for particular chemical reactions. more
