Principal Investigator
Areas of Research Interest
Georg Schneider's research interest lies in designing and implementing novel tools to predict molecular function and understand biological systems. The field is wide and encompasses methods anchored in information theory, statistical analysis and machine learning. Integrating implementations of these methods makes it possible to explore new heuristics for tracing evolutionary relationships. No sequence analytic system is useful without proper visualization which makes it necessary to keep up-to-date with advances in visualization techniques. Having to come up with robust and flexible systems, he is consequently also interested in software development methodologies and issues of high performance and distributed computing.
Georg Schneider was appointed as a Principal Investigator at the Bioinformatics Institute A*STAR Singapore in October 2007, where he leads the ANNOTATOR group which develops tools for functional sequence analysis.

He received a Master from the University of Economics in Vienna, specializing in computer science, and worked as a research associate at the Institute of Applied Informatics using methods from the field of artificial intelligence to design recommender systems and intelligent internet agents. After which he joined Frank Eisenhaber's group at the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP), Vienna and obtained a PhD in Chemistry (Bioinformatics) at the Institute of Theoretical Chemistry, Vienna. In his previous position, he was team-leader of the ANNOTATOR development efforts at the IMP.
