The Bioinformatics and Computational Biology group is a highly interdisciplinary team that conducts research on the 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.

The group is focused on the study the sequence-structure-function relationship, biological networks, on the understanding of self-regulatory dynamics, the evolution of individuated multicellular organisms, how do biomolecules have expanded and diversified, and how genome novelty can explain phenotypic diversity under different environmental conditions.
