Our research focuses in the computational analysis of genomic sequences on eukaryotic genomes, both at nucleotide and amino acid levels. We are interested in signals that define functional regions, such as splice sites, promoters, and so on, as well as in developing software to integrate data from different sources, for instance high-throughput evidences from the “omics” fields (basically genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics), to pinpoint functional candidates at sequence level for experimental follow-ups.

Planarian are emerging as a model organism, although its genome is less known than the standard model organisms. We are contributing with our expertise and computational tools to assist the planarian research community in this endeavour. We are mainly collaborating with Emili Saló’s Lab and we are getting involved as well on the European Planarian Network.

Finally, we would like to acknowledge those people and institutions that make our research possible. We tried to put all of them together in our Acknowledgements page.
