The main goal of the Bioinformatics Research Group is not only to concentrate and conduct research on a specific scientific problem but rather to develop and implement comprehensive bioinformatics pipelines, tools and strategy for the Szentágothai Research Centre and the University of Pécs.

The proposed strategy is based on four pillars:


  • bioinformatics research driving the development of new analysis methodologies,
  • bioinformatics core facility providing data analysis services for biomedical researchers,
  • bioinformatics education and training provided to students and researchers, and
  • bioinformatics infrastructure enabling the collection, storage and analysis of data. 


The group has established a number of research collaborations with local and international research groups, developed and implemented various data analysis algorithms and methods. Some of those have already been published or are currently under submission or review. 

The research group has also set up the Genomics and Bioinformatics Core Facility and started providing sequencing and data analysis collaboration-based services for its academic and industrial partners.

We are currently developing the curriculum of a Bioinformatics MSc program at the University. We have also successfully applied for an EU grant application under the ERASMUS+ program to develop bioinformatics and biostatistics competencies for biomedical students.
