The CNB research group

The Comparative Network Biology (CNB) group (led by Klaas Vandepoele and located at VIB-Ghent) is interested in extracting biological knowledge from large-scale experimental data sets using data integration, comparative sequence & expression analysis, and network biology, in plants, green algae and diatoms.
