Welcome to my humble homepage.
Let me tell you about myself.

My name is Bastian Schiffthaler and I am currently working on my PhD doing bioinformatics in Umeå, Sweden looking at a multi-layered picture of natural variation in the Swedish aspen Populus tremula.

What I do for work

Genome Assembly

We are currently dealing with the assembly and assembly improvement of the genomes of Populus tremula and Picea abies.

HTS Networks

Turning high throughput sequencing data into networks. One gene at a time.

RNA Sequencing

RNA sequencing data analysis for differential expression experiments.

Education

Teaching NGS data analysis and developing teaching resources.
