Research Summary:



Research in the group focuses on modeling biological data using networks and applying graph algorithmic techniques to mine these data and extract patterns of biological significance. Research projects combine tackling graph theoretic problems and analyzing real data with biological collaborators. Example projects include:
  • Inferring subnetworks that underlie a biological process of interest by
    integrating protein network data with gene expression or phenotypic information (example papers: 1, 2).

  • Boolean modeling of signaling networks (example papers: 1, 2).

  • Predicting drug properties and their applications in the clinical practice
    (example papers: 1, 2).

  • Evolutionary analysis of protein-protein interaction networks
    (example papers: 1, 2).
