Projects

We are interested in developing new approaches for integrating of omics data with applications for biomarker discovery, patient stratification and classification, among others. Some of these methods are available as public bioinformatics tools that can be used by researchers to study and interpret their data.

Statistical and ML methods for Multi-Omics Data Integration

One of our aims is to develop new statistical, computational and machine learning methods for the integration and analysis of heterogeneous omics data in a broad range of contexts:

  • Multi-omics data integration
  • Methods for meta-analysis of biomedical data
  • Pathway analysis and Network analysis

Dissecting the Molecular Basis of Complex Diseases

We closely collaborate with experimental groups to analyze and integrate large-scale biological datasets in order to get a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms of complex diseases.

  • Biomarker Discovery
  • Patient stratification and disease classification
  • Drug discovery and Pharmacogenomics

Our group participates in international and national networks and research consortiums

TRANSBIONET, the Translational Bioinformatics Network coordinated by the Spanish National Bioinformatics Institute (INB) that has been created as the reference network for Translational Bioinformatics that brings together most of the bioinformatics units and groups working at health care settings.

3TR is a transdisciplinary international consortium leaded by Dra. Alarcón-Riquelme in which experts from several areas of medicine, basic sciences, bioinformatics and data science from academic institutions and 8 major pharmaceutical companies work togehter to increase our knowledge of the molecular pathways linked to response to therapy in seven immune-mediated, allergic and inflammatory diseases. To this end, an unprecedented collection of omics data will be collected being the largest immunology project funded by the Innovative Medicine Initiative (IMI) to date.
