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. In order to analyze the plethora of data gathered, Biology requires the aid of computational interpretation - hence, Computational Biology.
The Computational Genomics Laboratory at Tel Aviv University's School of Computer Science, has been researching computational problems related to gene, protein and disease analysis. The lab's research interests include gene expression analysis, modeling and dissection of molecular networks, gene regulation, genomic rearrangements and cancer genomics. The methodologies assisting the researchers in their analysis are graph theory, complexity, probability and statistics. Methods and software tools developed by the group are in use by many laboratories around the world.
The lab is supervised by: Prof. Ron Shamir.
