Our main research interest at the Genome Systems Biology (GSB) Group is the study of genome-wide regulatory systems in order to reconstruct them from high-throughput molecular data, understand and model how they have evolved, and search for design principles in their construction. In particular, we are developing and applying new algorithmic tools for the automated reconstruction of genome-wide regulatory networks from comparative genomic, deep sequencing, and other high-throughput data. In addition, methods are being developed for studying genome evolution and the evolution of regulatory networks in particular.
