The Bioinformatics and Evolutionary Genomics group is a center of excellence in the fields of gene prediction and genome annotation, comparative and evolutionary genomics, and systems biology. The team is involved in many international genome projects and has a particular interest in genome evolution and gene and genome duplication events.

The Data Integration and Biological Networks group wants to study an organism as an integrated and interacting network of genes, proteins and biochemical reactions. The team devises new algorithms for data integration and network inference which are applied to all sorts of model systems.

The goal of the Evolutionary Systems Biology lab is to understand how biological systems work and how they evolve. We are especially interested in the impact of gene and genome duplications on the evolution of systems. We also develop methods and user-friendly tools to interpret biological networks.

The Comparative Network Biology group has the objective to extract biological knowledge from large-scale experimental data sets using data integration, comparative sequence and expression analysis, and network exploration.
