With a background in Computer Science, Marc Rehmsmeier has been working in Computational Biology since his Master thesis. After his PhD studies at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg and a few years as a postdoc, he became a group leader at Bielefeld University, spent some time at the Gregor Mendel Institute in Vienna and then moved to Norway where he became a full professor at Bergen University. Since 2015, he has been a senior researcher at Humboldt Universität zu Berlin. He works on computational and statistical approaches to questions in genetics and molecular biology, in particular in the field of epigenetic regulation through the Polycomb and Trithorax groups of proteins in flies and mammals, with a focus on DNA sequence. He has published 30 articles in peer-reviewed journals which have been cited over 6000 times. Marc has been interested in scientific presentation and paper writing for many years and has trained university students, PhD students and postdocs. In his workshops as well as in his university teaching, he uses a modern teaching approach that focuses on student activity.
