Circular RNAs (circRNAs) are a novel class of RNAs that usually originate from within genes and are unique due to their circularity. The lab studies effects of circRNAs in the healthy and diseased heart and develops software for circRNA research.
Circtools is a software for circRNA research that covers the complete workflow of circRNA of detection, analysis, primer and siRNA design for follow-up wet lab experiments.
SARUMAN is a software to align short sequencing reads against a genomic reference. To speed up the normally time-consuming alignment an NVIDIA graphics card is used exploit the massive parallel architecture of new graphics processing units (GPUs).
