Micha is a bioinformatics specialist with a focus on second and third generation sequence analysis and 14 years of experience in barley genomics, variomics and transcriptomics. She is one of the early pioneers of applying these technologies to barley. Over the years she has been involved in a large variety of projects across most of our crop plant species, but most of her research currently relates to barley. Micha's particular interest is in barley variomics and genomics. She has been actively involved in the last two barley genome projects, and also in the development of the last two barley high throughout genotyping platforms. She has an active interest in the quality issues Next Generation Sequencing data and its analysis suffer from.
