The Bioinformatics and Systems Biology (BioSys) Unit, created in 2014 by Prof. Patrick E. Meyer, is a research group from the Faculty of Sciences of the Université de Liège (ULg, Belgium).
The unit develops computational and statistical tools in order to uncover large-scale circuitry of biological cells from genomics data. This is done by inferring networks of genes, proteins and metabolites out of binding motifs, protein interactions and Next Gen Sequencing (NGS) data, such as expression data and ChIP.
The unit also contributes to open-source software, packages and web platforms allowing to infer, analyze and validate new networks.
The long-term goal of our research is to predict the right triggers in bacteria, algae and plants to yield improved biofuels, food sources, and air-, oceans- and soils- depollution.< Bioenergetics |
