Research Laboratory - Computational Genomics Laboratory
Far-reaching biological achievements, epitomized by the Human Genome Project, are the outcome of fast-growing compilations of vast and complex biological information. More recently, healthcare data is also becoming available on a very large sce. In order to analyze the plethora of data gathered, Biology and Medicine require the aid of advanced computational methods for data interpretation and analysis.
The Computational Genomics Laboratory at Tel Aviv University's School of Computer Science studies computational problems related to gene, protein and disease. The lab's research interests include gene expression analysis, modeling and dissection of molecular networks, gene regulation, analysis of electronic medical records and cancer genomics. The methodologies assisting the researchers in their analysis are algorithmic graph theory, machine learning, probability and statistics. Methods and software tools developed by the group are in use by hundreds of laboratories around the world.
The lab is supervised by: Prof. Ron Shamir.
