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

Sept 2020: Welcome to Eran

We welcome Eran Shpigelman who is joining the group as a master student. Eran did his BSc in the Hebrew University and is coming back to research after a period in the hi-tech industry.

Sept 2020: welcome to Maya

Maya Metzger will be joining the group as a research assistant. She will be assisting Dan Coster in work on EMRs. Welcome Maya!

September 2020: Congrats to Nimrod for CBRC award

Congratulations to Nimrod Rappoport who won the Zvi and Esther Weinstat Graduate Students Award on Cancer Research. His work was selected as an outstanding research project by the Cancer Biology Research Center at TAU.

August 20: Welcome to Dan Flomin

We welcome Dan Flomin, CS MSc student, who is joining the group.  

July 2020: Hagai starts the PhD program

Hagai Levi, having completed his MSc, is entering the doctoral program. Like the MSc, the PhD is supervised jointly with Rani Elkon of the Medical school.

April 2020: PlasClass: a new plasmid classifier

Read the new paper by David Pellow describing a new algorithm to classify bacterial vs. plasmidic sequences.

March 2020: Improved network-based module detection

Read Hagai's paper on BioRxiv about the pitfalls in network-based module detection algorithms, how to overcome them, and about DOMINO, a novel algorithm that performs very well on gene expression and GWAS data.  


Jan 2020: congrats to Dvir!

Congratulations to Dvir Netanely, who submitted his PhD thesis titled  "Cancer subtype identification using large-scale omics data analysis".  

Jan 2020: congrats to Hagai!
