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.
19 September 2018: Are you an expert on the traits of species? We need you! Please, contribute to Traitpedia, our database of species traits.
27 June 2018: We moved in the neighbourhhod! Since June 27th our home is the new Biozentrum I, which officially opened June 25th, some hundreds of meters away from the IMB.
22 March 2018: Ever wondered about where pizza fits in the tree of life? Find out now in this paper (published in the Annals of Improbable Research) where we helped Russ Hodge to define The Evolution of Pizza.
