Introducing image of the groupBiomedical Informatics (Fortino's group)


We make use of large-scale biomedical data, such as genetics, genomics, transcriptomics and biological knowledge bases, and data mining algorithms to build applications for biomedical research.

A particular interest of the group is to develop and combine machine learning and network analysis of biological data enabling:

  • Biomarker and drug target discovery for precision medicine.
  • Integrative analysis of omics and biological knowledge network for exploration of disease mechanisms and ‘molecular actions’ of drugs/compounds.
  • Data-driven discovery of disease subtypes/endotypes and identification of related biomarkers
  • Classification models using omics-driven features for in silico prediction of efficacy and/or toxicity in drug discovery.

We have expertise in developing tools for omics data analytics, network and data mining algorithms, and artificial intelligence-based methods, including machine learning.
