Marie and Oskar started their work as PhD students in our group. Welcome back!
Alexander, Arthur, Marie, and Oskar attended a Helmholtz Analytics Framework meeting for the usecase "Structural Biology" together with the groups of Prof. Michael Sattler from Technical University of Munich and Prof. Gunnar Schröder from Forschungszentrum Jülich at the Bavarian NMR center, Forschungscampus Garching.
For 2018's "Girls' Day", ten interested young ladies from different high schools in Karlsruhe area visited our group at SCC. Marie and Oskar gave a short introduction to our work at the institute's 3D visualization room and organized a workshop with programming games and small simulations.
The whole group went to the DPG Spring Meeting of the Condensed Matter Section (SKM) together with the EPS in Berlin. Alexander organized a focus session on statistical physics-based methods in molecular evolution together with Prof. Martin Weigt from Institut de Biologie, Paris. Ines and Marie gave talks about their work and Arthur, Lars, Mehari, and Oskar presented their projects in the poster sessions.
Arthur continues his work as a PhD student in our group. Oskar finished his Master thesis. Congratulations!
