What we do

Our group is interested in the regulatory machinery controlling gene expression. We investigate it by analyzing population scale multi-omics data sets (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, proteomics) in which we use genetic variations as natural perturbations of the systems in order to unravel the various interactions between molecular features (e.g. genes, regulatory elements, proteins). One leitmotiv in our research is the development of innovative computational methods to efficiently process and analyse large scale genomic data sets.
