Our group focuses on the development of computational methods for systems biology for emerging technologies and for the meta-analysis of publicly available omics data, hereby designing ‘relevant’ tools by combining advanced statistics and data mining with the proper biological assumptions. These methods assist systems biologists with the analysis of their data, but also allow discovering ‘new biology’ from the meta-analysis of publicly available data.
