Overview

The IoB consists of two independent research groups: Comparative Genomics (Dr. W. Makalowski) and Cancer & Complex Systems Research (Dr. E. Korsching).

Comparative Genomics group research spans wide range of topics related to broadly understood genomic evolution. We are interested in basic processes that shape our genomes such as gene families evolution (globins, mitochondrial outer membrane proteins), genome structure (Genomic ScrapYard, U12-type introns), and host-parasite interactions (Apicomplexa population genetics, fruit bat genomes). We are also engaged in building software and databases (TinT, TEclass, ACTransDB, just to name few).

Cancer & Complex Systems Research group focuses on the analysis of the complexity of the biological cell.
