Biography

Linda Sundermann earned both her B.S. and M.Sc. at Bielfeld University, Bioinformatics and Genome Research.
Already during her time as Master student, she became a Research Assistant at Genome Informatics, under Jens Stoye at Bielefeld University. In 2013 she became an Associated Member of the International Research Training Group “Computational Methods for the Analysis of the Diversity and Dynamics of Genomes”, GRK 1906. With the help of German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), Linda joined Rätsch Lab at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in 2014 for half a year. There she started a project in cooperation with Quaid Morris from University of Toronto to reconstruct the clonal composition of a cancer sample. Currently, she joined BMI for half a year again.

Some of her interests include cancer heterogeneity, methods to reconstruct the clonal composition of cancer samples, Next-generation DNA sequencing (especially long-read sequencing) and DNA sequence analysis like haplotype phasing, assembly, chimera detection, or alignment techniques.
