Research Lab Results for comparative genomics
Liliana Florea LabPrincipal Investigator:
Liliana Florea, Ph.D., M.Sc.
Research in the Liliana Florea Lab applies computational techniques toward modeling and problem... solving in biology and genetic medicine. We work to develop computational methods for analyzing large-scale sequencing data to help characterize molecular mechanisms of diseases. The specific application areas of our research include genome analysis and comparison, cDNA-to-genome alignment, gene and alternative splicing annotation, RNA editing, microbial comparative genomics, miRNA genomics and computational vaccine design. Our most recent studies seek to achieve accurate and efficient RNA-seq correction and explore the role of HCV viral miRNA in hepatocellular carcinoma. view moreResearch Areas: evolutionary genomics, vaccines, carcinoma, cancer, genomics, bioinformatics, RNA, comparative genomics
Salzberg LabLab WebsitePrincipal Investigator:
Steven Salzberg, Ph.D.
Research in the Salzberg Lab focuses on the development of new computational methods for analys...is of DNA from the latest sequencing technologies. Over the years, we have developed and applied software to many problems in gene finding, genome assembly, comparative genomics, evolutionary genomics and sequencing technology itself. Our current work emphasizes analysis of DNA and RNA sequenced with next-generation technology. view moreResearch Areas: computational biology, DNA, genomics, sequencing technology, biostatistics, RNA
