Dr. Jürgen Dönitz

Researcher and subgroup leader

I am interested in the knowledge management in the biology and the biomedical field. This ranges from network analysis over the semantic web to infrastructure conception and software design. My background is in biology, from where I proceeded to the field of bioinformatics. After three years as software developer at the State and University Library of Göttingen, I made my PhD and am working now in the Institute of Medical Bioinformatics of the University Medical Center Göttingen and the Dept. of Evolutionary Developmental Genetics of the University Göttingen.


Current projects

MTB-Reporting (starting 1. 2. 2020)

In this project we aim to develop a tool that suggest therapies for tumor patients based on their biomarkers. For more details please see the project page.


iBeetle-Base is a joined project together with the Dept. of Evolutionary Developmental Genetics. Initially this database provides access to the phenotypic annotations gathered by a whole genome RNAi screen in the red flour beetle Tribolium castaneum. Currently iBeetle-Base is funded by the DFG in the project titled "iBeetle-Base: Building an Interconnected, Interactive and Extendable Repository for Phenotypic Data". More ...


In the MyPathSem project we aim, in a collaboration with other institutes of the UMG, to extract the patient specific parts of the molecular networks. For more information please check the project site.
