​If you are wondering about the spiny damselfish and acidifying ocean, read this!

Jim spent some time with us to discuss our projects


Sarah and Maria received their PhD and Nouf her MS degree in Biosciences


Taewoo's paper on the transgenerational acclimation to warming oceans it out! Congratulation to all

Graduation day!​

Congratulation Harris for his PhD thesis defence.

Sarah won the 1st prize at the XVI International Biodeterioration and Biodegradation Symposium in Lodz, Poland, with her work entitled "A system-wide approach to identify mechanisms of barnicle attachment, towards identification of new antifouling compounds.

Gregorio graduated!

Laura successfully defended her MS thesis, well done!
Leading researchers from Saudi Arabia and Australia are coming together to understand the genetic makeup of corals and how they might respond to climate change.
Check out Gregorio's video describing a new method for the prediction of Genetic Interactions!
Congratulations Taewoo! Taewoo won the 2011 SABIC Post-Doctoral Fellowship Award for his work on Red Sea Sponges Genomic and Systems Biology
Trends in computational biology—2010. Nature Biotechnology , 29-1 Jan 2011 Interviews with leading scientists highlight several notable breakthroughs in computational biology from the past year and suggest areas where computation may drive biological discovery.
An atlas of TF–TF interaction networks in humans and mice may offer powerful new insights into the principles of gene regulation and reveal new strategies for treating disease.
Researchers are also figuring out how macaques differ genetically from humans—a key step in understanding both the value and limitations of these monkeys as surrogates for humans in experimental work.

The FANTOM Consortium for Genome Exploration Research Group, a large international collection of scientists is reporting the results of a massive multi-year project to map the mammalian "transcriptome" in this week's issue of the journal Science. Full article available at:


Due studi dimostrano che solo il 2% del genoma serve a far produrre proteine. E che la molecola che «conta» di più probabilmente non è il Dna ma l'Rna che lo «trascrive». Full article available at:
