Welcome to the Institute of Bioinformatics

The research activities at the Institute of Bioinformatics are directed towards two major thrusts:

Computational genomics. We are computationally exploring diverse functional genomics data in the context of human diseases. By analyzing high-dimensional datasets we aim to identify and prioritize candidate genes and further characterize pathways contributing to the pathophysiology of diseases.

Cancer immunology. Our aim is to decipher tumor-immune cell interaction using a combined computational-experimental approach. Specifically, we are addressing the question how is the immune system shaping the mutational spectrum of the tumor during progression.
