The Fundamental and Applied Genomics group is devoted to provide knowledge and innovations in genomic technologies, methods of genomic analysis and the application of genomics in medicine and life sciences. This group plays a key role in bringing together researchers from environmental agencies, medical centers, institutes and technology companies for collaborative research projects. This group also provides the leadership and teambuilding environment necessary to foster successful collaborative research teams on genome investigation, gene discovery, population genomics, transcriptomics and genome-wide regulation, among others.
The Genomics and Health group aims to bridge the gap between fundamental research and clinical care through the characterization and development of tools and biomarkers to improve health outcomes of patients. One key objective is to accelerate progress in genomic research in pathogenomics and human health by cultivating a common framework of standards for effective genomic and health-related data analysis. This group is actively searching and/or identifying new therapeutic targets to prevent and cure diseases from both the pathogen and host perspectives.
The Bioinformatics and Computational Biology group is a highly flexible interdisciplinary team that conduct research in computer, biological and mathematical sciences.
The group’s strategy is to integrate computational approaches to explore data sets generated by high throughput technologies (OMICS technologies) in order to develop new concepts, tools and knowledge to study biological processes and their evolution. Research laboratories are focused on the study the sequence-structure-function relationship, understanding the nature of self-regulatory dynamics and evolution of individuated multicellular organisms, how do biomolecules have expanded and diversified and how genome novelty can explain phenotypic diversity under different environmental conditions.
The Systems Biology Group at CGB-UM is devoted to merge expertise in computational, mathematical modeling and high throughput biological tools to unravel complex biological systems. This is a biology-driven interdisciplinary group composed by four laboratories that focuses on complex interactions within biological systems, using a holistic approach to biological research.
