Research Interests

We are interested in structural and evolutionary analysis of genome variation and divergence. We apply bioinformatic approaches to problems of evolutionary genetics and human population genetics.

Additionally we develop novel computational techniques for proteomics and for comparative analysis of protein sequences and structures.
