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 rapid development of high-throughput experimental techniques demands sophisticated data handling. Within the last decade the requirement on service structures has increased substantially in expenses and complexity. We provide data management for national and international collaborations in the field of basic and translational cancer research as well as for DKFZ internal needs.
Some major collaborations are effecting our activities, e.g. the National Genome Research Network (NGFN), the three German projects within the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure - de.NBI (de.NBI), DEEP (Deutsches Epigenom Programm), the German contribution to the International Epidemiological Consortium (IHEC), the Heidelberger Center for Personalized Oncology (DKFZ-HIPO) and the German Consortium for Translational Cancer Research (DKTK).
