Genome Analysis Techniques in Biology and Medicine

Prof. Wilhelm Ansorge, PhD.

Former EMBL Heidelberg, Director Department of Funtional Genomics

His laboratory pioneered multidisciplinary developments of automated technology and techniques in : Sequencing and Analysis of genomes, first complete Human Genome Chip Array (and the International standard protocol for microarrays MIAME), devices for synthesis and analysis of DNA and proteins, Automated Systems for Microinjection and Image Analysis in Single Cells, Fast Screening of Monoclonal Antibodies, Electro-transfection of cells. He investigated magnetic properties of materials, worked in design of semiconductor devices, and of superconducting magnets. Currently, he is a visiting scientist at EPFL-ETH Lausanne, serving on several European Scientific Advisory Boards, evaluating scientific projects and institutions, with continued interest in innovative analysis techniques for genomics and medicine. Wilhelm Ansorge co-authored over 250 publications, some included in Teaching material by universities worldwide (e.g. Next Generation DNA Sequencing review (I) in 2009, its updated version (II) in 2016), and 5 books on Molecular Diagnostics, Genomics, Microarrays techniques, DNA Sequencing and Analysis. He applied for and was granted over 30 patents in genomics and technology, with license agreements and commercial products by leading European companies.
