Tal Pupko - Research interests 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.
