    New publication

    We recently published our latest work, led by Tatiana, in NAR Cancer. Tatiana developed a computational approach, called PORCUPINE, to map heterogeneity in individual patient gene regulatory networks and applied it to study leiomyosarcoma, an aggressive cancer that can develop in smooth muscle tissue.

    Ismael is back!

    We are happy to welcome Ismael Manzanares Garcia back in the group. Ismael recently completed his studies in biochemistry at the University of Granada, Spain. This summer, he will be working with Romana to test dimensionality reduction approaches on various network metrics that he will calculate for individual patient gene regulatory network models. Previously (summer 2022), Ismael was an Erasmus+ student working with Giulia on deconvolution of...
