Research Description

Our lab focuses on the development of algorithmic and machine learning approaches to biological sequence analysis. We are particularly interested in the analysis of transcriptional regulation, in particular the prediction of transcription factor binding sites and regulatory modules, as well as in splicing regulation. Our approaches often rely on comparative genomics.
