Research Focus


TheĀ Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics group is a center of excellence in the fields of gene prediction and genome annotation, comparative and evolutionary genomics, and systems biology. The team is involved in many international genome projects and has a particular interest in genome evolution and gene and genome duplication events.


TheĀ Data Integration and Biological Networks group wants to study an organism as an integrated and interacting network of genes, proteins and biochemical reactions. The team devises new algorithms for data integration and network inference which are applied to all sorts of model systems.
