Welcome !

This website presents the activities of the BIO3 research group at university of Liège (Belgium)

BIO3 is part of the Systems Biology and Chemical Biology thematic research unit of GIGA-R and of the Systems and Modeling Unit of the Montefiore Institute. The areas of expertise of BIO3 are biostatistics, biomedicine and bioinformatics. BIO3's mission is to help biomedical researchers carry out their investigations and analyze their data, as well as designing new statistical and bioinformatics methods whenever they are needed. Methods development cover the areas of data mining and machine learning (including supervised, semi- and unsupervised learning techniques), parametric, semi- and non-parametric methods and variable selection methods, for the inference of gene networks, for patient subphenotyping, for the assessment of (the determinants) of population strata, and for purposes of investigating association, prediction and causal relationships. Furthermore, algorithm optimization and computations methods are developed in the context of "Big Data" analyses. Research developments pay special attention to those related to interaction analyses, integromics, inclusion of prior biological knowledge in modeling or testing protocols, as well as meta-analytic techniques.
