Computational Systems Biology

OVERVIEW

In the post-genomics era, there is undoubtedly a plethora of accumulated genomic, genetic and proteomic data. However, there is a growing gap between the biological molecules (DNA, RNA and proteins) with experimentally determined function/structure and the ones that have not been assigned to any functional/structural annotation. To handle this overwhelming amount of information, we apply bioinformatics and systems biology methods for processing, analyzing, and interpreting biological data in a meaningful way.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My main research interests include:

  • Application of bioinformatics methods for the analysis and meta-analysis of cancer genetics and genomics data.
  • Phylogenetics & Comparative genomics.
  • Analysis of biological sequences
  • Biological networks.
  • Development of bioinformatics pipelines for the analysis of biological data.
