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.

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).

18 September 2020: we hosted in virtual format the 4th Challenges in Computational Biology meeting: Single Cell Data Analysis, organized by Ina Koch (Goethe University Frankfurt), Jean-Fred Fontaine (JGU-Mainz), Pablo Mier (JGU-Mainz) and Miguel Andrade (JGU-Mainz), as a satellite meeting of the German Conference on Bioinformatics 2020.

2 April 2020: REP, a server to detect protein repeats, is back by popular demand.

30 March 2020: We started our 3rd consecutive week of home office doing our best to continue our work while reducing the spread of the current coronavirus pandemic.
