We develop algorithms and tools for analysis of
genomic and systems biology data. Areas include:

Sept. 2017: An extensive enhancer promoter map and algorithm

Read Tom and Didi's recent paper on BioRxiv describing the FOCS algorithms for enhancer-promoter linking, and an extensive map of more than 300,000 links based on vast ENCODE, Roadmap, Fantom and GroSeq data.

Sept. 2017: Welcome to Dan Coster

We welcome Dan Coster, who is joining the group as an MSc student.  Dan is a student in the Lautman program and will be working on precision medicine.

August 2017: PROMO website is up

The PROMO tool is now available for download by beta users here. Promo,  developed by Dvir and Neta, streamlines analysis of large multi-omic datasets in cancer.      

August 2017: SCREEN replicability paper published

Didi's paper (with Dani Yekutieli) proposing new methods to control the FDR when analyzing together multiple studies appeared in PLoS Comp. Bio. 

Aug. 2017: Dvir Netanely wins a prize in the Djerassi symposium

Congratulations to Dvir, who won an excellence prize for his abstract in the 2nd Graduate Students Symposium on Cancer held by the DJERASSI-ELIAS Institute of Oncology at the Sackler Faculty of Medicine. The symposium was held in July 2017.

July 2017: Faucet paper published

Roye's paper, describing a streaming de novo assembly graph construction algorithm, has just appeared in Bioinformatics.

July 2017: Congratulations to Tom Hait!

Congratulations to Tom Hait, who was awarded the MSc degree, co-supervised by Rani Elkon and Ron Shamir.

July 2017: Paper on improving minimizers published

Read the new paper in Bioinformatics by David, Yaron and colleagues from Carl Kingsford's group on improving the performance of minimizers and winnowing schemes.

June 2017: Reconstructing cancer karyotypes

Read Rami Eitan's paper on reconstructing cancer karyotypes from short read data on BioRxiv

May 2017: Roye Rozov wins the Deutsch Excellence Scholarship

Congratulations to Roye Rozov for being awarded the Deutsch Excellence Scholarship for PhD students in the School of Computer Science, TAU. The awarding ceremony will take place on Thursday May 18, at 15:15, in the Open Space Lab in the School of Computer Science.
