Prof. 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.

Pathogenomics: developing and applying machine-learning tools for predicting effector proteins in pathogenic bacteria. Functional prediction of protein activities. Evolutionary analysis of bacterial and viral genomes.

Immunoformatics: predicting B cell epitopes and developing algorithms for analyzing phage display experiments.
