Tal Pupko - Research interests :
My research interests are concerned with various
fields of Molecular Evolution and Bioinformatics:
Molecular evolution: studying the evolutionary selective forces shaping
genes and genomes and the in-silico predictions of these forces using
probabilistic evolutionary models.
Phylogenetics: reconstructing evolutionary relationships and ancestral
sequences, inferring lateral gene transfer, alignment and alignment
reliability. model selection.
Pathogenomics: developing and applying machine-learning tools for
predicting pathogenicity determinants in bacteria.
Microbial genomics: developing efficient and accurate online tools for comparative bacterial genomics.
