March 2019: welcome to Lianrong!

Dr. Lianrong Pu has joined the lab as a postdoc. She did her PhD in Shandong University, China. She spent two years of the PhD at Pavel Pevzner's lab at UCSD. Lianrong has specialized in genome rearrangements and segmental duplications. In the group, she will work on genome rearrangements in cancer and on algorithms for universal hitting sets.

March 2019: Congratulations to Dr. Ron Zeira!

Congrats to Ron Zeira, whose doctorate titled "Models for Structural and Numerical Alterations in Cancer" was approved by TAU. Ron is continuing to a postdoc in Ben Raphael's lab in Princeton.

March 2019: Expander in Russian

The Expander website has been translated to Russian. See here.

February 2019: FOCS paper accepted to RECOMB highlight track

The paper on identifying enhancer-promoter links was accepted to the highlight track of RECOMB 2019 and will be presented by Tom Hait in the conference on May 2019 in Washington DC.

January 2019: ATGA course translated to Armenian

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

December 2019: Kobi Perl’s PhD thesis approved

Kobi Perl, MD student, has done PhD research jointly in our lab and in Prof. Karen Avraham's lab (Medicine). His thesis "Understanding of Developmental and Physiological Conditions of the Inner Ear using Transcriptome and Proteome Analysis" has now been approved and is available here. Congratulations Kobi!

November 2018: Welcome to Roy

Roy Safra, a senior Bioinformatics BSc student, has joined the group as a programmer. He will be working with Nimrod on multiomics analysis methods.

October 2018: Prodigy algorithm is out

Read the new report by Gal describing a new method for prioritizing mutated genes as drivers in a cancer patient.

October 2018: Ron Zeira now a postdoc in the lab

Congratulations to Ron Zeira who is now officially a postdoctoral student in the lab.

October 2018: Multi-omic clustering review and benchmark.

Read the NAR paper  by Nimrod Rappoport, which provides an extensive review and benchmark of multi-omics and multi-view clustering algorithms for cancer subtyping.

Prof. Ron Shamir
