Computational genomics group

The main focus of our group is to decipher and understand the biology of genomes. Genomes, as the molecules of life, contain the necessary information for the development and evolution of living organisms. Despite this information is encoded in a four-letter code; it presents different levels of coding possibilities and complexity. The analysis of genomic and derived sequences allows us to uncover the general rules and patterns that control and make life possible. Our research activity uses computational and experimental approaches to reach these goals by finding answers to specific molecular, evolutionary and biomedical questions.
