We are looking for a master student (m/f/v) in Bioinformatics / Informatics for the research group Bioanalytical Chemistry (PD Dr.
Schwudke) at this time in the field of Lipidomics.

The goal of this master's thesis is to develop algorithms that will allow to incorporate lipid quantities into the lipidome homology computation. For this purpose an optimization function needs to be defined that helps to maximize the accuracy of the homology metric and should improve associations of phenotypic data to lipidomes (Eggers et al. Scientific Reports 2017).
