About me

Felipe Fernandes Albrecht, also know as Π, or simply, Pí

I am a PhD student at Max Planck Institut für Informatk in the Computational Biology and Applied Algorithmics department, in the beaufiful city of Saarbrücken, Germany. Please, check my LinkedIn profile for a complete list and description of my professional experiences or access my Curriculum vitae.

Current work

DeepBlue - The idea behind DeepBlue is to provide a central access hub for large collections of epigenomic data and organize this data using controlled vocabularies. The data are kept in a central server, where they can be accessed, operated, and transfered as needed. Please, check its manual for more information.

EpiExplorer - Originally developed by Konstantin Halachev, EpiExplorer is a web tool that allows you to use large reference epigenome datasets for your own analysis without complex scripting or laborous preprocessing. EpiExplorer was developed in the Computational Epigenetics Group at the Max-Planck Institute for Informatics. EpiExplorer was published at Genome Biology http://genomebiology.com/2012/13/10/R96.

Previous work

Genoogle - Genoogle aims to be a fast and sesible similar sequences searching software, which it uses parallelization and indexing techiniques. It was my masters thesis and a personal project that I developed from 2007 to 2012. I am not working on it anymore. It is still usefull and the code is available. Genoogle. It is a software for similar sequences searching. It is free software (GPL 3) and it is write in Java language, working at Linux, Windows and Mac platforms. You can find more info in my notes about genoogle.

Algoritmo otimizado para comparação de sequências e busca em base de dados - My Master thesis (2009). Unfortunately in portuguese.

Numerical methods for inferring phylogenies - Paper of the presentation of my Professor Nelson Borges at the ICIAM07 of our work about distance methods for inferring phylogenies.

"Sentado quietamente,
Nada fazendo,
A primavera vem,
A grama cresce por si."

doing nothing,
the spring comes,
the grass grows by itself."
