This is the website for Miguel Andrade's Computational Biology and Data Mining Research Group of the Johannes-Gutenberg University in Mainz at the Institute of Molecular Biology in Mainz, Germany. We are interested in exploring gene function using computational techniques including algorithms and databases (existing or developed by us). Generally, we have a focus on studying the mechanisms involved in human disease with the goal of facilitating the development of better therapies. The results of our work are often distributed as software or online web tools. Take a look at the group members' publications or at our projects page for more information. Contact details and individual web pages can be accessed from the Lab Members page.
11 April 2016: ARD2, our tool to predict alpha solenoids from protein sequences, has been moved now to JGU-Mainz.
|1 October 2015: We have hosted on 9 November 2015 the Challenges in Computational Biology Workshop, organized by Jean-Fred Fontaine and Miguel Andrade (JGU-Mainz).|
18 September 2015: The first issue of Genomics and Computational Biology is online. Genomics and Computational Biology is a peer-reviewed and open-access journal directed by Dr. Fontaine. It publishes original Research, Tools (software and databases), Benchmarks and Analytical workflows. You can help the community by joining the Editorial board or by submitting your work.
1 Sept. 2015: New version of HIPPIE available.
20 April 2015: the mBISON tool to find enriched miRNA targets in sets of genes from ChIPseq is out there!
