Research Projects

Research area

Our main research focus is to understand the biological role of long noncoding RNAs in the cell by applying an approach based on the combination of computational and experimental methods. Our main projects are:

  • Identification of lncRNAs in vertebrate genomes•
  • Analysis of the evolutionary conservation of lncRNAs•
  • Functional characterization of lncRNA in vivo•
  • Bioinformatics tools for genome-wide lncRNA analysis
  • lncRNA
  • Big data
  • transcriptomics
  • genomics
  • zebrafish

Research activity

  • Shedding new light on genome’s dark matter: identification of novel long non-coding RNAs in zebrafish – OPUS 16. (pdf)
  • GENCODE: comprehensive gene annotation for human and mouse.
