Welcome!

This is the web page of our laboratory, a.k.a. Cancer Genomics and Bioinformatics.The lab has been established in 2019 @ the Italian Institute for Genomic Medicine (IIGM), located within the Candiolo Cancer Institute FPO IRCCS (IT) and at the Biosciences Department of the University of Milan "La Statale".

Artenatively have a look here: C.G.B. @ IIGM


What do we do?

The lab follows three main directions

Alternative splicing

Deciphering splicing regulation in disease

Cancer evolution

Assessing tumor genetics and evolution to faster precision oncology

Data Science

Designing novel algorithms to gain information from genomic Big Data


The future is unwritten

 Our News

The C.G.B. highlights

CGB retreat

Our first CGB lab retreat in Varenna

We spent two days in the beatuful location of Villa Monastero (Varenna, LC) discussing our research updates with scientists from IFOM (Milan), Tigem (Naples) and Medea (Bosisio Parini, LC) institutes.

Here some updates!

Artificial Intelligence in bulk and single-cell RNA-seq: where are we?

Here our review on learning approaches for the analysis of large-scale RNA-sequencing datasets in cancer.
We present the major solutions to disentangle tumor heterogeneity of transcriptome profiles for an effective improvement of patient management, check it out!

NAR GSECA

'Less is more', our paradigm shift in gene set analysis is out!

We introduced a probabilistic modelling, namely GSECA, to identify altered biological process relevant for complex phenotypes from heterogeneous high-volume RNA-seq data.

Have a look at our pancancer analysis of PTEN loss and its role in modulating immune-related processes across cancer types!
