Research Profiles

Research Direction

The centre mainly focuses on:

  1. Training young researchers in the field of bioinformatics such as; human and bacterial genomics, in-depth metabolomics analysis, and protein modeling.
  2. Engaging in collaborative research with national and international institutes in the genomics field.
  3. Design and development of genotyping kits in collaboration with the ISBC.
  4. Providing bioinformatics services.

Research Scope:

1.   Human genomics

Quality control, processing and analysis of raw human genome data to extrapolate information relevant to health, population, migration studies.

2.   Bacterial genomics

Quality control, processing and analysis of raw bacterial genome data to extrapolate information relevant to pathogenicity, virulence, phylogenetic and phylogenomic patterns, and resistance evolution.

3.   Bacterial metagenomics

Analysis of multispecies bacterial samples derived from multiple sources (e.g. stool), for the relevant studies (e.g. health and cognition).
