Alexander Keller is working on ecological bioinformatics and species interctions.
Most of my research is dedicated to the interactions between plants and pollinators, and their respective interactions with microbes. My workgroup applies to a large part high-throughput sequencing techniques, i.e. metabarcoding and genomics, to address species interaction networks and functional diversity in these interactions.
We also work on a variety of computational pipelines to process large-scale data in ecological analyses, develop databases and provide webservices. Among these are mapping traits to ecological communities in bulk, as well as visualization of species interaction networks.
