The mission of our group is the development and implementation of algorithms that facilitate the understanding of biological processes through the application of statistical and data mining techniques. Biology is becoming more and more in a science that necessarily needs to include information technology as a basic discipline in order to understand the extremely complex biological process of the living organisms. Life sciences in general are generating huge amount of data with the accelerated development of high throughput technologies. Therefore, in parallel to the accumulation of the experimental information there is the obvious need of analyzing all this huge amount of data.
In particular the Bioinfo group focuses in the following research areas: data mining, text mining, gene expression and algorithm tuning on high performance architectures.
