The Bioinformatics centre focuses on two major fields of research:
1. Genetic Evolution
We pursue projects to analyse genetic diversity and to use this knowledge for discerning the evolutionary relationships among species
(i.e. phylogeny reconstruction) and understanding complexities of biological processes (e.g. evolution of genetic regulation).
2. Tissue Formation and Cellular Signal Transduction
We concentrate on understanding genotype and phenotype dependencies in tissue formation and function. Projects study the mechanisms
of spatial formation of tissues (e.g. epithelia, tumours, engineered tissues), the architecture and function of signal transduction and
genetic regulatory networks using high-dimensional genomic and molecular data from manipulated normal and diseased tissues
(e.g. gene expression analysis).
