Department of Software & Information Systems Engineering
Welcome to our Research Group
Recent advances in technology led to the generation of diverse high-resolution biological data, which have also introduced immense challenges in data mining and analysis. Careful interpretation and integration of such data are crucial for the understanding of complex biological phenomena and the design of optimal therapeutic strategies. Our research interests and contributions stem from the need to develop computational and mathematical techniques to achieve these goals.
Bioinformatics is a multidisciplinary field that combines computer science and mathematics to analyze and interpret biological and medical data.
The products of our research
As part of our research, we develop algorithms and pipelines to solve various computational problems. Our algorithms are based on pattern matching, graph algorithms, clustering and machine learning.
We also develop databases and web-applications to promote data availability and data visualization.
We collaborate with experimental biologists and clinicians to gain new insights into complex biological questions.
Our current research focuses on two main domains:
MicroRNA biology and post-transcriptional gene regulation
