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
Pathogenomics: developing and applying machine-learning tools for
predicting effector proteins in pathogenic bacteria such as Legionella and
Coxiella. Predicting hydrogenosomal proteins in Trichomonas vaginalis.
Functional and evolutionary analysis of HIV-1 genomes.
Immunoformatics: predicting B cell epitopes and developing algorithms
for analyzing phage display experiments.
