Dr. Andreas Heger

Senior Scientist

I gained a Diploma in Biotechnology from Braunschweig University of Technology and a PhD from the European Bioinformatics Institute before spending five years doing post-doctoral work in Comparative Genomics.

I have spent the last five years as a Technical Director at the MRC Computational Genomics and Training Programme. I have been working at the intersection of algorithm development and biological data interpretation. My forte has always been automation and workflow construction.

Outside work I enjoy spending time and having fun with my young family.
