Welcome to the Division of Bioinformatics

The research activities at the Division 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.

Computational tools for cancer immunology published in the journal Nature Reviews Genetics
