Senior Principal Investigator
   Research Group: Gene Function Prediction

Birgit Eisenhaber's research interest is focused on the discovery of molecular functions of previously uncharacterized protein coding genes. The development of accurate prediction tools for proteins' posttanslational modifications and subcellular localization are one of the key points in her work. Birgit Eisenhaber studied biocybernetics and medicine at the Pirogov Medical University in Moscow. After working as a professional software developer, she restarted her scientific career at the EMBL Heidelberg. She obtained her PhD from the Humboldt University Berlin. Subsequently, she worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) Vienna and at the Experimental Therapeutics Centre (ETC) Singapore. In December 2010, Birgit Eisenhaber was appointed as a Principal Investigator at the Bioinformatics Institute (BII) Singapore.

Birgit is part of the Gene Function Prediction group that is focused on the prediction of molecular and cellular functions of genes and proteins based on the theoretical analysis of biomolecular sequences, expression profiles and other omics high-throughput data.
