# Software Technology and Applications

## Research Field

Our researchers develop specialized algorithms for the analysis of complex data from a variety of application fields in economics and science. Heuristic processes and evolutionary algorithms are used, for example, to solve optimization problems in areas such as production planning. In bioinformatics and medical informatics, intelligent software systems are developed for the analysis of molecular biological data and for the simulation of biological processes.

Bioinformatics supports life science specialists with intelligent software systems and high-performance computing. They are used for analysis of molecular biological data, the identification (unknown) proteins, epidemiological studies applied in modeling the course of various diseases and the simulation of biological processes.

**Heuristic and Evolutionary Algorithms**

The research group HEAL develops (nature-inspired) algorithms for solving complex optimization problems. Areas of application range from data-driven modeling of chemical processes over the optimization of production schedules to data mining in biomedical data.

For specific medical problems the 3D-models of human organs developed in this research group can replace lengthy investigations in modern medicine or contribute to the development of a surgical plan.**Mobile Interactive Systems**

The Research Group Mobile Interactive Systems conducts research projects with partners from industry and academia to develop and evaluate novel interaction techniques, applications and services with mobile devices like smartphones, tablet computers, smart watches and pico projectors. Since 2010, the group has been working on a range of research topics in this area. Its research interests include especially the interaction between mobile devices and interactive surfaces, pen and paper interfaces, handheld augmented reality, context-aware computing, adaptive user interfaces as well as prototyping and usability testing of mobile applications.
