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

September 2018: A new multi-omics clustering algorithm

NEMO is a new clustering algorithm developed by Nimrod for multi-omic data. It can handle missing data without imputation and is fast and simple. In extensive tests on ten cancer datasets we show its advantage over the current state of the art.

September 2018: ATGA course translated to Punjabi

The lecture notes of Ron Shamir's course "Advanced topics in Graph Algorithms" have been translated to Punjabi. See link. This is the twelfth translation of the course, following Ukrainian, Indonesian, Russian, Estonian, Bulgarian, French, Czech, Swedish, Spanish, German and Dutch.

September 2018: quantifying microbiome similarity between individuals

Our new paper  with Ting Chen (Tsinghua) and colleagues describes a new method for measuring microbiome similarity and identifying individuals by their microbiomes.

August 2018: 3D genome structure and gene expression

Read Idan's paper jointly with Rani Elkon on the interplay between 3D chromatin organization and gene expression programs under basal and stress conditions.

July 2018: Multi-omic clustering benchmark

Nimrod's review and extensive benchmark on multi-omic clustering algorithms​ is now online.

August 2018: Congratulations to Ron – and Hadar

Congratulations to Ron Zeira who defended his PhD thesis. Right after the defense, in complete surprise, he proposed to his girlfriend Hadar who attended the talk. Congratulations to the newly engaged couple!

June 2017: Congrats to David Pellow

Congrats to David Pellow, who passed the PhD thesis proposal exam and advanced to phase B of the doctoral studies.

June 2018: multi-copy genome rearrangement review

Read the manuscript by Ron Zeira reviewing some central models and results in genome rearrangement analysis, with an emphasis on multiple copies and cancer.

June 2018: Inner ear study

Read Kobi's paper (jointly with Karen Avraham) analyzing expression profiles of the developing auditory organs, and prioritizing novel deafness genes.

June 2018: Congratulations to Dr. Roye Rozov!

Congratulations to Roye for approval of this doctoral degree. Roye graduated last year and the refereeing process of his thesis was now completed, making his degree official.
