Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Laboratory

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Laboratory was officially established in 2006 with the goal of uniting ongoing bioinformatics research in the department. We focus on developing and applying algorithms for the analysis of high-throughput data and modeling of processes related to molecular biology. The broad aim of our research is to provide computational tools to assist researchers in understanding, explaining, and predicting the behavior of complex biological systems. We utilize methodologies from the areas of machine learning, statistical modeling, graph theory to provide solutions to bioinformatics problems such as protein functional classification, gene expression analysis, and biological network analysis.
