Structural Computational Biology Group

Group Leader:  vacancy
Overview

The main interest of our Group is the study of the molecular bases of cancer by bringing an evolutionary perspective to the study of the interplay between genomics and epigenomics in tumour progression.

Our research is largely carried out in the context of large-scale genome projects, in which we develop new computational methods for the study of genome-cancer relationships.

In this general scenario, the strategic goals of the Structural Computational Biology Group are to:

  • Develop new ideas, methods and software platforms for the extraction, integration and representation of cancer data, including the analysis of molecular, genomic, epigenomic and phenotypic information in collaboration with large-scale genome projects.
  • Include new technologies for data and text mining, together with Machine Learning methods, in our cancer genome analysis framework.
  • Analyse the function, structure and specific interactions of cancer- related proteins.
