Our group is affiliated with the Departments of Environmental Health and Biomedical Engineering,
University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, as well as with the Division of Biomedical Informatics, Children's
Hospital Research Foundation (see links below). Our research in the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology
is driven by both methodological developments and applications, spanning a wide range of projects that deal with various data
streams and problems arising in the context of genomics, proteomics and biomedical research.
Some examples include protein structure and function prediction, protein-protein interactions and the
recognition of functional sites in proteins, gene (genome) annotation, and the identification of
predictive fingerprints of disease states, especially in the context of large SNP genotyping.
We rely heavily on pattern recognition and
machine learning approaches to develop improved and/or tailored methods for the above applications.
In collaboration with biologists, biochemists and physicians, we are applying standard and our own methods to
a particular problem at hand. To read more about our research,
