Welcome to the eilslabs

The eilslabs form a joint research group between the division "Theoretical Bioinformatics" at the German Cancer Research Center (dkfz) and the department Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics at the Institute of Pharmacy and Molecular Biotechnology (IPMB) at Heidelberg University. The group is headed by Prof. Roland Eils.



The Thomas Gessmann PhD Prize is awarded for outstanding dissertations in technical fields and is endowed with 10 000 EUR. William J. Godinez, who did his PhD within the Biomedical Computer Vision (BMCV) group of eilslabs and is now Postdoc there, received the Thomas Gessmann Prize 2014 for his PhD dissertation in Computer Science on “Probabilistic Tracking and Behavior Identification of Fluorescent Particles”. He was nominated by the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Heidelberg. The prize was awarded by the Chairman of the Thomas Gessmann Foundation, Gerhard Häußermann, in the presence of the Rector of the University of Heidelberg, Prof. Dr. Bernhard Eitel, during a ceremony at the Alte Universität on November 6, 2014, in Heidelberg.



Automatically determined trajectories of virus particles in 3D microscopy image sequences. Trajectories are rendered as spheres (intermediate positions) and sticks (displacement vectors); cubes show the current position of the particles. Colors are used to distinguish the different trajectories. Source: William J. Godinez
