Epigenetics and Gene regulation: Bio Research Laboratory LUMS

Students will be introduced to latest discoveries in the field of gene regulation which include transcriptional, post-transcriptional and translational levels to regulate genes. Basic nuts and bolts of epigenetics will be explained linked to genome organ


The Biomedical Informatics Research Laboratory (BIRL) at LUMS aims to address such complex bio-medical challenges by leveraging integrative approaches that cut across disciplines. The currently ongoing research themes at BIRL include (i) Cancer Systems Biology, (ii) Computational Proteomics and (iii) Health Informatics. We absolutely love to listen from colleagues working in these areas. Please feel free to ping us .


Bio Research 

An integrative analysis of biological and clinical data can help researchers develop a deeper appreciation of the principles underpinning life. Towards this goal, we construct integrative models of complex pathologies such as cancer to as far as building decision support systems for conditions such as pregnancy. The current research focuses of BIRL include multi scale integrative investigation of cancer, development of next-generation cancer modeling software, top-down proteomics search engine and e-health monitoring systems.
