What we do

In the Computational Biochemistry Research Group, we are interested in the modelling and analysis of biological problems at the molecular level. In particular, our expertise lies in searching algorithms, optimizing algorithms, mathematical modelling, and computational systems. Most of our research efforts are concentrated on the Orthologous MAtrix (OMA) project. This particular project aims to produce, automatically, reliable orthologous groups of proteins that are derived from entire genomes.
