• CoBIUS: We are a Computational Biology Team at the Computer Science (Informatique) Department of Université de Sherbrooke with team members from diverse origins bringing various expertises. The lab is headed by Professor Aïda Ouangraoua, PhD, Msc Eng, and we work in close collaboration with life scientists to validate our tools by solving complex biological questions on real data.

  • Research: Our research projects proceed from computational biology questions related to the comparison of genomic and transcriptomic data. We develop innovative mathematical models and computational tools to study and solve biologically motivated questions aimed at understanding the evolution of genomes and their components. We focus on questions related to the evolution of genome structures, gene architectures and RNA structures.
