Computomics is a spin-off of the University of Tübingen and the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology. Computomics was founded in 2012 when it became apparent that crop companies are interested in the cutting-edge bioinformatics analyses enabled by a breakthrough in DNA sequencing technology and by the scientific work of the founders.
Four of the co-founders are accomplished scientists: Dr. Detlef Weigel is Director of the Molecular Biology Department of the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, Dr. Daniel Huson is Professor for Algorithms in Bioinformatics at the University of Tübingen, Dr. Gunnar Rätsch is Professor for Biomedical Informatics at the ETH Zurich, Dr. Karsten Borgwardt is Professor for Data Mining in the Biosystems Department of the ETH in Basel.
Co-founders Dr. Sebastian J. Schultheiss and Dr. Tobias Dezulian are scientists specialized on bioinformatics analyses of high-throughput DNA sequencing data. Both have had industry experience prior to founding and serve as Managing Directors of Computomics.
Computomics has 10 employees and is based in Tübingen, Germany.
