Experimental and Computational Biology[ by Prof. Dr. Röbbe Wünschiers - University of Applied Sciences - Mittweida/Germany ] [home]

Lifelong Learning.

Welcome! These pages will provide you with some information about my research. Students will find most lecture slides and additional information.


University of Applied Sciences Mittweida

If you are interested to study for a Bachelor degree in Biotechnology/Bioinformatics or a Master degree in Molecular Biology/Bioinformatics you should take a look here: University of Applied Sciences Mittweida. Mittweida is located close to Chemnitz in Saxony, Germany. There, I am teaching Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Computational Biology. You may also like to take a look at the university's blog



BioData, Biogas & Synthetic Biology

In my research we apply experimental and computational methods to the field of biogas production. One project (CyanoFactory, funded by FP7 of the European Union) applies a synthetic biology approach to utilise sun energy for hydrogen gas production with cyanobacteria. Our group contributes computational methods to reach this goal. The second project (funded by the Free State of Saxony/Germany) concentrates on metatranscriptome analysis of productive biogas fermenters. The goal is to understand and improve the fermentation process, in particular during the start-up phase.

CyanoDesign is a tool for metabolic modelling and flux-balance analysis with a simple graphical user interface. It predicts the metabolic performance of cells under given intrinsic and extrinsic conditions. CyanoDesign is an integral part of the CyanoFactory KnowledgeBase.


Nutrilyzer is a software that extracts paralogous protein coding sequences from an annotated genome sequence and evaluates their atomic composition. When fed with gene-expression data for nutrient limited and normal conditions, Nutrilyzer provides a list of genes that are significantly differently expressed and contain significantly different amounts of the limited nutrient in their atomic composition. Its intended use is in the field of ecological stoichiometry.


OrfMapper links sequence IDs to metabolic pathway maps and can be found at www.orfmapper.com


A recent software tool for the visual annotation of phylogenetic trees is called PhyloAnnotator. Enjoy.

CyanoFactory is a collaborate research project for design, construction and demonstration of solar biofuel production using novel (photo)synthetic cell factories. CyanoFactory brings together ten selected leading, highly complementary European partners with the aim to carry out integrated, fundamental research aiming at applying synthetic biology principles towards a cell factory notion in microbial biotechnology. The vision is to build on recent progress in synthetic biology and develop novel photosynthetic cyanobacteria as chassis to be used as self-sustained cell factories in generating a solar fuel.

Synthetic Biology

Here you will find information about synthetic biology. This site has been create in context with the summer academy 2010 of the Studienstiftung des Deutschen Volkes. Not all content is visible for general users.


AWKology is not a religion but the art performed by AWKolgists who process data with the scripting language AWK. I love it, I teach it and once in a while I do it. Look at my rudimentary blog.

Biohydrogen and Bioreactors

You are also welcome to take a look at my web project at www.biowasserstoff.de and The Bioreactor Project at PhotoHydrogen. With The Bioreactor Project I try to transfer the scientific knowledge about the biological photoproduction of hydrogen gas into the classroom. Thus, these educational pages are especially suited for teachers.
