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.

October 2018: Welcome to Yael

Welcome to Yael Ben-Ari who is joining our group as a master student.

October 2018: Congratulations to Gal for IBS best poster prize

Congratulations to Gal Dinstag, who was awarded the Eran Cohen memorial award for one of the best posters in the 20th Israeli Bioinformatics Symposium (IBS2018). Gal won the prize for his work "Personalized prioritization of cancer driver mutations".

September 2018: ATGA course translated to Greek

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

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.
