The general focus of our research will be computational genomics - algorithms, mathematical models and tools aimed to answer fundamental questions about living systems through the analysis of large-scale genomic data.
Members of our group have developed many widely-used algorithms for sequence assembly and analysis (Flye, metaFlye, Ragout). We have extensive experience in long-read DNA sequencing and recently contributed to completion of the human genome sequence as a part of the T2T Consortium. In another recent work, we used long-read metagenomics to recover hundreds of nearly-complete bacterial chromosomes from a complex heterogeneous environments.
We are hiring! We are looking for passionate postdocs and PhD students to join our team. Please check here for details.
