Evolutionary Processes Modeling

Home Research People Publications Software Positions Contact

The Weghorn Lab is located at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in Barcelona, Spain. Our research focuses on analyzing evolving systems, particularly cancer tumors and the human population. We analyze sequencing and other biological datasets and develop mathematical and computational approaches to estimate selection. An important aspect of this effort is to investigate mutational processes and the heterogeneity of the mutation rate.

We are part of the Joint Program on Evolutionary Medical Genomics.
