The Computational Biology Lab, led by Peter Dawyndt, is part of the Department of Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics at the Faculty of Sciences of Ghent University. The laboratory's research occurs at the intersection of computer science and the life sciences. This cross-fertilization is a potential starting point for fundamental new developments in biology, biotechnology and medicine, but also serves as a source of inspiration for novel developments in computer science. Among their current research topics are computational applications for (meta)genomics, (meta)proteomics, (meta)transcriptomics, (bio)chemistry and data visualisation. The group actively develops the Unipept platform and the Dodona e-learning platform which are both recognised as ELIXIR Belgium Node Service.
