The associate de.NBI partner at Kiel University is a joint effort by the Institute of Microbial Genomics and the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology. Our groups combine basic research with a range of state-of-the art bioinformatics applications and in-house developments. Through the de.NBI, we are happy to offer interested users the possibility to make use of our expertise in their projects.
A key focus in Kiel is on providing practical support for complex but routine bioinformatics projects in the wider field of genomics. In particular, users can collaborate with us in three key areas that reflect the different competences in our institutes – the design and analysis of genome-wide association studies (D. Ellinghaus), assembly and annotation of animal genomes (M. Höppner), and microbial phylogenetics and comparative genomics (T. Dagan). Our services include consultation and/or practical support to help you plan your project, define a realistic budget and time frame and execute it. Further we provide access to a range of infrastructures, including one of the largest academic Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) and genotyping centers in Germany, specialized hardware for the assembly of large genomes but also detailed hands-on experience in a range of bioinformatics applications.
We are running state-of-the art tools and workflows for our three key areas genome-wide association studies, assembly and annotation of animal genomes, and microbial phylogenetics and comparative genomics.

The working group for cheminformatics and computational metabolomics at the Friedrich-Schiller-University is dedicated to research into the structure elucidation of natural products, compound identification in the context of metabolomics and algorithm development in cheminformatics.
Over the past 10 years, we established the first open-access repository for Metabolomics with a global scope - the MetaboLights database at the European Bioinformatics Institute. We led the FP7-funded Coordination Action for the development of standards in metabolomics (COSMOS) and co-founded the world-wide network for metabolomics data exchange MetabolomeXchange. We co-develop, with the group of Claire O'Donovan, head of metabolomics services at the EBI, the MetaboLights database from Jena as a de.NBI and ELIXIR activity and strengthen the de.NBI expertise in Metabolomics in collaboration with the groups in Halle and Bielefeld interested in Metabolomics. We are further leading the computational e-infrastructure project PhenoMeNal to establish cloud-based computational workflows to analyse data in Metabolomics. Our service provision within de.NBI is based on those projects and comprises assistance and advice on the deposition and cloud-based analysis of metabolomics data.
We are running state-of-the art tools and workflows in metabolomics and for computer-assisted structure elucidation in natural products analysis. We continue the development of the MetaboLights database under the ELIXIR umbrella in collaboration with the EBI.
