The Research Group on Biomedical Genomics is led by Dra. Nuria López-Bigas. The group focuses on the computational study of human genetic diseases, including hereditary diseases and cancer, at genomic level. The group is at the frontier between medical genomics and bioinformatics, which requires a multidisciplinary formation of the team members.
The main research lines are:
- Development of methods to identify cancer drivers.
- Systematic identification of cancer driver genes (IntOGen-mutations).
- Cancer genomics data visualization.
