Jan Korbel is a groupleader at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany, in the Genome Biology Unit. He has a PhD in Molecular Biology and performed his Postdoc at Yale University. With expertise in Human Genetics and Computational Biology, Jan’s research focusses on structural rearrangements of the genome in the germline and in cancer. His group has developed several new approaches for the characterization of genomic structural rearrangements and applied these to identify the extent, origin, and functional consequences of different genomic alteration processes in cancers, specifically in pediatric brain tumors and prostate cancer. Jan has a leading role in the 1000 Genomes Project and the ICGC / TCGA Pan-Cancer Analysis of Whole Genomes Initiative.
