Ivo's Home Page

Since 2010 hold a double professorship at the faculties of Chemistry and Computer Science. I am also currently head of the Institute for Theoretical Chemistry as well as the Research Group Bioinformatics and Computational Biology. For information about my group see the TBI home page.


My scientific interests fit mostly under the computational biology umbrella. Much of my work focuses on RNA Bioinformatics, the most visible part perhaps being the Vienna RNA Package for prediction and comparison of RNA secondary structures, which my coworkers and I have developed for over 15 years.
For a description of the individual projects in our group see the TBI Research page, or browse though my list of publications. Our preprint server contains working papers and downloadable preprints for most papers for the really curious.


For a list of the courses I'm involved in during the current semester, look at Sommersemester 2012 or see the online course catalog for the full list. See also TBI course list for other courses by TBI staff.
