The laboratory of bioinformatics was created in 2018 to develop the field of bioinformatics at the Faculty of Computer Science. Due to the revolution in high-throughput technologies bioinformatics became Big Data Science in Genomics. The main direction of educational and scientific activities of the laboratory are fundamental research in the arta of DNA secondary structures and their role in genome functioning, chromatin organization and DNA-protein interactions. Students can take an internship and be involved in active scientific research at the early stages of their education. Laboratory has colloborations with the world leading laboratories of bioinformatics.
The laboratory staff Helen Tevanyan and Michal Rosenwald made oral and poster presentations at the international conference on bioinformatics and Biomedicine in Madrid. Mikhail Gelfand is the organizer and co-chair of the workshop "analysis and modeling of three-dimensional chromatin structure", held within the framework of the conference.
Maria Poptsova made a presentation "DNA punctuation-hidden layer of genome annotation" in IT crater
Maria Poptsova made a report 'Methods of machine learning in bioinformatics' in the section on Interdisciplinary Problems in Life Sciences.
