Summary of Research
Our ultimate goal is to investigate the molecular mechanisms that are implicated in chronic diseases and developmental processes. Our work involves the development of new computational and statistical models for the study of gene expression regulation (protein coding and non-coding genes) in a systems' biology framework.
