The Sysbiobig group research activity is centred in the development and application of advanced modelling, data mining and machine learning methods for high-throughput biological data analysis in the field of Bioinformatics and Health Informatics.
In particular, the Sysbiobig group has been working on the preprocessing and analysis of static and dynamic transcriptomics and metagenomics data and has developed and applied different advanced data mining and machine learning methods for robust biomarker discovery, predictive modelling and clustering
The group has also a great expertise in the development/application of differential equation based models, Boolean and Bayesian Networks in the field of reverse engineering and systems biology.
Recently, the group has also started to explore a new research line in the field of Synthetic biology. By implementing new biological systems in the form of living cells, engineered through rationally designed synthetic genetic circuits, our group aims to exploit engineered probiotic bacterial cells as a novel therapeutic approach.
