About our research group

by anonymous master student

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.

22 April 2019: Nucleic Acids Research Genomics and Bioinformatics, a new journal accepting submissions on methods and findings related to genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, and epigenetics.

14 February 2019: The new version of the HIPPIE database (2.2) is available with more than 65,000 new scored human protein-protein interactions.

26 October 2018: We are editing a special issue of the journal Genes on 3D Genomics. Accepting submissions until 15 May 2019.
