About A. Untergasser

I am a molecular biologist. I studied biology in Heidelberg in Germany from 1996-2000. I made my PhD from 2000-2002. Afterwards I made a first PostDoc in Cologne and a second in Wageningen, the Netherlands. Since 2009 I teach biology and chemistry at a high school in Michelstadt and continue the bioinformatics work at the ZMBH at Heidelberg University.
