I’m a bioinformatics PhD student at EMBL-EBI and the University of Cambridge but I’m originally from Berlin.

My programming interests span from C++ over .NET and dynamic languages all the way to XHMTL/CSS and R.

I’m mainly working on genomics using high-throughput sequencing data. My thesis is about the regulation and expression of non-coding RNA (especially tRNA) in mammals.

comment How can I betray Maven Black-Briar?
@Unionhawk I just meant that my standards of morality, being in the Dark Brotherhood, are not exactly high.

comment How can I betray Maven Black-Briar?
More generally, many of the quests are simply immoral in nature, and I would appreciate having more alternatives in addition to “perform quest according to script” and “don’t do quest at all”. But at least for some quests this seems to be really impossible.

comment Betraying the legion while organising peace talks
Yes, turns out I was now able to persuade General Tullius to come to the peace council without handing over the Jagged Crown, and then turn turncoat afterwards. Aaaand now everybody hates me, despite me freeing them from the dragon menace. Fickle mob.

comment Is there a way to see Minecraft's source code?
I’d be interested in the legality of the MCP … since Minecraft isn’t Open Source, how legal is it to distribute its (restituted) sources?

comment Where can I find EULAs for games BEFORE I purchase them?
Hm, isn’t Steam obliged to refund it to you? I know that stores in Germany are obliged to refund any software product of which you didn’t accept the EULA, even if the package has been opened. Some software even had a note to this effect placed on their CDs.

@ArdaXi Thanks. I never noticed this.

comment Is Cave Johnson Chell's Father?
The Lab-rat comic also contains a fact sheet of Chell with human annotations, which would imply that she was already a test subject before GLaDOS’ take-over. Either this is an inconsistency or it shows that Chell was not in fact abducted on BYDTWD. Or I’m daft.

@tzenes There is no “list of tags you don’t see”, that I’m aware of. Ignored tags are grayed out, not hidden. How does this policy work? I’m unable to find a pertinent FAQ, and I don’t see how I can hide spoilers in titles.

Compared to this video, my portal-playing has all the agility of an eagle. Piloting a blimp. :-(

comment How to make this jump across in Testchamber 16 in Chapter 8?
That was probably the hardest test chamber. It took me about 30 minutes to get rid of the robots (maybe more? lost my timing) and ten more seconds to get to the exit. ;-)
