Meet the Team
We are the people from the team SchneebergerLab. We are located in the beautiful city Cologne and in the bavarian city Munich.
Prof. Korbinian Schneeberger
Korbinian was born in the bavarian city Munich. He is the head of the team in Cologne and Munich.

Dr. Manish Goel
Manish is from India and his primary research focus is to develop novel computational methods for comparing genome structures. He is also interested in studying meiotic recombination and making corresponding predictive models.
Xiao Dong comes from China. Her research interest is to investigate and understand the spectrum and mechanism of mutation in plant genome. Her work focuses on the analysis of variance in mutation accumulation lines of Arabidopsis thaliana (Col-0) which have been infected by pathogens.
Dr. Hequan Sun
Hequan Sun comes from China. His research interests are mainly in developing computational methods by integrating next generation sequencing and genetics, as well as understanding the origin of mutations (e.g., in meristematic layers) during genome evolution using computational techniques.
Dr. Samija Amar
Samija Amar comes from Serbia. She only started in this group and will work on differentprojects. Her main focus will be on creating single cell genome and RNA libraries. With this effort genomic changes (recombination, mutation) will be linked with phenotype of various species (potato, A. thaliana, Brassicaceae species, etc.).
Dr. Craig Dent
Craig comes from a small town in south-east
Australia. He has a background in both
genetics and computer science. He is
interested in genetic variation, and focuses on
the development and application of
computational tools for genetic research.
Birgit comes from Germany, She works part-
time for the group in Cologne. With her strong
knowledge in different molecular methods
she is an important and essential support for
Dr. Sergio Tusso
Sergio comes from Colombia. He is interested
in speciation genomics in diverse study
systems, and in general ecological and
molecular factors resulting in population
divergence. His work focuses on comparative
genomics, experimental evolution, and
inference of molecular recombination from
single cell sequencing.
Dr. Raúl Wijfjes
Raúl’s main research interest lies
in developing strategies to link genomic and
phenotypic variation between different
species of the Brassicaceae family. While his
first name suggests him to be of Spanish
origin, he actually hails from the Netherlands.
Lisa C. Baus
Lisa comes from Ecuador. She is doing her
PhD. During her bioinformatic courses she
gained a deeper insight into NGS and this
brought her to Cologne to do her master
thesis. Now she is back in Munich.
Dr. José Campoy
José comes from south of Spain. His main
focus is to decipher the basis of bud
dormancy in temperate-fruit trees tinkering
with spontaneous mutants, single-cell
sequencing, meristematic layers and
