Jasmin Zohren

Jasmin Zohren is a PhD student working with Dr. Buggs and Prof. Nichols at Queen Mary University of London. They collaborate closely with CLC bio, Qiagen Aarhus, Denmark.
Jasmin is one of 13 early stage researchers funded by the EU Marie Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) INTERCROSSING working in the field of genetics, informatics, and statistics.

Jasmin did her undergraduate studies at RheinAhrCampus Remagen (Fachhochschule Koblenz), Germany, in Biomathematics. In the course of writing her Bachelor’s thesis she did an internship in Charles Swanton’s Translational Cancer Therapeutics Lab at Cancer Research UK, London.
Afterwards she worked as a research assistant with Prof. Dr. Martin Hoffman-Apitius at Fraunhofer SCAI in St. Augustin, Germany, and took Master’s courses in Life Science Informatics at the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology (b-it) in Bonn, Germany.

Her interest is in next-generation sequencing and its application to hybridisation and introgression.
During her PhD she will be analysing the genomes of Betula nana and Fraxinus excelsior. She will also collaborate in developing software with CLC bio.
