Genomic Medicine

Systems Biology and Functional Genomics

The Genomic Medicine (GM) program at TIGEM focuses on the development of integrated experimental and computational tools and their application to mammalian disease models to monitor therapeutic approaches.

This lab includes investigators with medical, biological, engineering and physics backgrounds, working in close collaboration with geneticists and molecular biologists within the Institute. This makes TIGEM one of the few interdisciplinary institutes that applies systems biology approaches to genetic diseases. The GM program at TIGEM is so significant that researchers have been encouraged to use innovative technologies and robust experimental and computational tools in their own research and thesis projects, such as whole gene expression analysis, co-expression networks and statistical analysis of quantitative data.
