Research Activities

IGM research activities focus on the analysis of fundamental biological processes and are integrated with a likewise qualified translational research. Three main lines of research are active: 1) molecular analysis and cellular biology of hereditary genetic diseases, 2) molecular characterization of acquired genetic diseases such as tumors and their progression to metastasis, 3) development of techniques and screening of new compounds. Research activities exploit state-of-the-art methodologies applied to molecular biology, cellular biology and bio-computing analysis of complex biological problems.

COMPUTATIONAL BIOLOGY

 

The general topic of this group research is the analysis of the biological evolutionary mechanisms on an empirical and theoretical basis.

Empirical research regards the study of genetic migration through the spatial distribution of surnames that, considered as genetic markers, allow to follow movements of individuals and so of their genes. Other studies on evolution regarded consanguinity, genetic drift and inbreeding of the Italian population.

Utilizing information available in literature and different databases a general model for the metabolism (metabolic hypercycle) is utilized to formulate specific models for complex diseases, in particular for autoimmune diseases.
