ITU BIOINFORMATICS RESEARCH GROUP
Welcome to the Bioinformatics Research Group at ITU. We develop computational models and automated analysis methods on biological data (genomics, metabolomics, epigenetics, transcriptomics, etc.). In particular, we do research on computational genomics (see Baysan Lab) and systems biology approaches (see Cakmak Lab) to understand health and disease. We also develop open-source tools to make our algorithms available over the web for the bioinformatics community at large.
We are looking for graduate and undergraduate students to participate in various research projects! Candidates with good programming and analytical thinking skills are encouraged to apply. Research assistantship with TUBITAK/TUSEB support is available for qualified promising graduate students. Please fill out the application form if you are interested in joining our group .
