Dipl. Inf. Norbert Grundmann

Common

Norbert G
I am responsible for soft- and hardware at this institute. You know, this is a never ending story and full of surprises. Previously I was working as an administrator at university, as a consultant and in an insurance company - mainly in software engineering and implementation. Much of my work belongs to genetic projects with the focus on software solutions for scientific questions.

Work and visions

As I started my work at this Institute I began to learn more about genetics and the underlaying software. For different projects I designed and implemented tools, like SCA for codon analsis and TinT for time evaluation of transpositions. Actually I am working on a tool called "Genome Presence Absence Compiler" gpac. One thing that I have learned: software is only as good as the team that created it. Maybe we will work on the road together? :-)

Along this I am very interested in the Unix drivate FreeBSD and happy that some of our server are already switched over from Solaris to BSD :-)
