Algorithms in Bioinformatics

Welcome to the Algorithms in Bioinformatics lab.

The main focus of our lab is on developing new and advanced algorithms for bioinformatics. Here is a short list of our current main research interests:

  • Microbiome analysis and simulation
  • Long read analysis
  • Phylogenetic networks and trees
  • Models, algorithms, software and complexity

For more details, see the research section, our publications and our software.

You are invited to the talk of our guest, Cristian Botta, PhD researcher, Department of Agricultural, Forest and Food Sciences, University of Torino, Italy. Title The use of omics in food transformation processes and environments: from the current observational studies to the future practical applications on 10th October 2023, starting 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. in room F119 on Sand 6. Abstract: Metataxonomic, metagenomic and transcriptomic are nowadays extensively used in medical microbiology to obtain a holistic view of the patient's identity and further highlight biomarkers associated to human pathologies and diseases. Although for microbiologists they represent well-established techniques, in food science and technology their use is still marginal and their potentialities are far from being fully understood, both from academia and industry. In this talk examples of omics applications in food industries and processes will be shown and discussed, with emphasis on advantages, limitations and pitfalls encountered in the last five years of applied research
