Our laboratory specializes in the research areas of Bioinformatics, Applied Statistics, Mathematical Modeling and Information Theory. We are particularly interested in environmental metagenomics and the analysis of human DNA. Our focus includes the development of new methodologies for the analysis and interpretation of next generation DNA sequencing (NGS) data and to create new computational tools for the rapid analysis of NGS data.
