Gene function prediction

We are surrounded by a hidden world of microorganisms that influence human health, have a role in food and beverage preparation, act as decomposers and have many other important functions. Modern sequencing techniques provided an insight into genes of the microorganisms. By knowing biological function of genes we can improve our understanding of microorganisms role in the environment. However, function of many genes is still unknown. My primary research interest is oriented towards machine learning methods for automatic annotation of genes in microorganisms with functions.

Main research directions:

  • Feature sets constructed from genomic data
  • Complementarity between feature sets
  • Data fusion techniques
  • Development of a pipeline for automatic annotation of genes with functions
