In the above context, our research is directed towards the development of new computational models for the identification of disease-associated markers using functional genomic and systems biology approaches. Relevant examples of our current research include:
- Data management and integration of high-throughput datasets
- Biomarker identification
- Systems biology
Our research activities are tightly integrated with an advanced genomics facility platform providing cutting-edge technologies for high-throughput analysis and next generation genomic approaches and is supported by the CRS4 leading High Performance Computing centre. The CRS4's Bioinformatics laboratory has access to large clinical sample sets and genomic data and closely collaborates with hospitals to support clinical researchers in translating basic research findings into clinical applications.
