Project description
DNA sequencing methods have become more affordable and accurate than ever before: modern High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) data gives an unprecedented view into the genome of any living organism. HTS has quickly become the basis for biological and medical studies. However, analyzing the mountains of biological sequences produced requires scalable and versatile tools. We developed new computational methods for different fields of bioinformatics, most importantly sequence analysis and tumor genetics. The results aid in large-scale data analysis taking into account the current and future DNA sequencing technologies.
