The Bioinformatics group is located in the Department of Molecular Biology at the Division of Biology, Faculty of science in Zagreb, Croatia. The group was formed in 2002 in an effort to include bioinformatics and computational biology courses in the molecular biology curriculum at the Faculty of Science and to motivate students for research in this prominent and highly interesting new field of biology.
Our present research interests include epigenetic mechanisms to transcriptional regulation, evolution of regulatory elements, development of complex diseases, human glycan profiles, codon usage in metagenomes, genomic complexity of the simplest Metazoa and codon usage analysis in whole genomes (INCA), etc.
We are open to all forms of collaborative activities! We are always looking for interesting biological problems to apply our computational biology methods.
Teaching activities are held in form of graduate courses as well as annual courses in collaboration with some European experts. Our teaching is compliant with the guidelines of Bologna convention and we extensively use distance-learning methods.
