bioinformatics and computational biology

  • elucidate the fundamental principles underlying macromolecule structure, function, folding and evolution, and the mutual relationships among these features; 
  • build macromolecular models at atomic level;
  • predict protein function;
  • design proteins variants or short peptides endowed with desired properties;

Genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic and other large scale data (”big data”) are analysed using computational and statistical methods.

In particular, we develop tools in the following areas:
