The Laboratory for Theoretical and Computer Studies of Biological Macromolecules and Genomes is an interdisciplinary laboratory within the framework of the Center, which is focused on various problems in bioinformatics and computational biology. Also, the Laboratory provides computational facilities and support for other laboratories of the Center.
The head of the Laboratory, Prof. Francisco Rodriguez-Valera, is a pioneer in the field of metagenomic assembly of microbial genomes (MAG) and one of the world's leading scientists in the field of systematics and molecular biology of archaea.
Our priority objectives are:
In addition to tight integration with other laboratories of the Center, our laboratory also collaborates with research groups from M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Miguel Hernandez University (Spain), University of Southern California (USA).
