The Bioinformatics Development and Statistical Genomics Team focuses on the development and implementation of novel bioinformatics and statistical methods for genomics analysis.

The objective is to improve and increase the computationally efficient, high quality, highly automated, state-of-the-art analysis pipelines that can not only be applied to the analysis of data generated at the CNAG, but can also be exported to other research centres. This is necessary for the development of future analysis techniques and pipelines that might give rise to changes in both the quantity and type of sequencing data that will be available over the coming years.  


The Team is working on the development of toolbox for efficiently checking for GC bias from raw sequence reads, an statistical method for calling Differentially Methylated Regions (DMRs) and the analysis of sequencing data generated with ONT from various human B cell samples.
