Thomas Rattei (TR) was appointed at the University of Vienna as a full professor heading CUBE, the Division of Computational Systems Biology, by March 2010. Work and experience of TR cover a wide spectrum of topics from bioinformatics, genome and metagenome analysis and systems biology. He has long-standing expertise in developing and applying computational methods for the interpretation of large-scale sequence information. The international reputation of his research group triggered their involvement in numerous international (meta-) genome sequencing and analysis consortia. The research activities of TR are not only covering individual, project-specific questions but also general problems in bioinformatics, computational infrastructure and large-scale biological databases. Furthermore, his group develops novel computational approaches for studying molecular inter-species interactions, such as between hosts and pathogens, between symbionts or in microbial ecosystems.
