About our research group

This is the website for Miguel Andrade's Computational Biology and Data Mining Research Group of the Johannes-Gutenberg University in Mainz (Germany), located at the Biozentrum I. 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.


1 December 2022: Our tools have been migrated to a virtual machine. Thanks to the IT group of the JGU!

28 November 2022: Web server down for migration to a virtual machine.

8 November 2022: Lisanna Paladin (EMBL-Heidelberg) and Pablo Mier guest edit a special issue "Bioinformatics in Protein Evolution" in the journal Biomolecules. Send your submissions until 31 March 2023.

29 April 2022: Just released a new version of the HIPPIE database (2.3), which almost doubled (from ~391,000 to 783,000 scored human protein-protein interactions).
