Gábor Bedics - PhD Student
My work in our institute focuses on next-generation sequencing and the related bioinformatic analyses. In my PhD project I intend to create a molecular profile of pediatric acute lymphoblastic leukemia patients in Hungary, using various NGS methods. Beyond that project, I analyse NGS data from other oncologic samples and work on a germline-NGS analysis project.
Benedek Dankó - MSc Student
I am studying for a master’s degree in biology, with a bioinformatics specialization at Eötvös Loránd University. My research topic covers the transcriptional profiling of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and analysis of databases related to this disease. Moreover, I am interested in human genetics, cancer biology, bioinformatics and genomics.
Tibor Nagy - Bioinformatics System Administrator
My primary job is to keep the underlying software components of various analyses run smoothly. I like making automatic workflows for large datasets and optimizing existing analysis pipelines. I have diverse experience in bioinformatics, as I did GWAS and RNA-seq analysis, metagenomics and de-novo assembly of the genomes of unknown bacterial species.
Tamás Pór - Bioinformatics Intern
I am a molecular biologist with a strong interest in computational biology. After spending 10+ years in clinical research I turned back to academic research, part time at least. My current project is the analysis of transcriptional noise in cancer cells.
Endre Sebestyén - Group Leader
My main research interests are eukaryotic transcriptional and post–transcriptional gene regulatory networks, their role in human disease and how these networks are influenced by genetic variability, the environment or the inherent noisiness and redundancy of molecular systems. Originally trained as a molecular biologist, now I have more than 15 years of experience in various aspects of computational and systems biology.
Alexa Szeifert - BSc Student
I am a molecular bionics engineering student at Pázmány Péter Catholic University. Before joining the group, I was working on the pathogenetic role of microRNAs in inflammatory diseases. At the moment, my project is on the statistical analysis of RNA modifications in cancer. My main focus is analyzing genome and transcriptome sequencing data of hematologic malignances and examine the expression pattern of reader, writer and eraser enzyme coding genes in different healthy and tumor tissues, besides their potential regulatory effects.
Veronika Vraukó - PhD Student
I am a PhD student in the Experimental Oncology program of Semmelweis University, 1st Department of Pathology and Experimental Cancer Research. My doctoral research examines the essentiality of biological functions in gene regulatory networks and their role in cancer development and disease penetrance. During my PhD work my focus is on bioinformatic and biostatistic methods, besides systems biology and biological network approaches. I graduated in Molecular bionics engineering (University of Szeged) and have a master’s degree in Medical biotechnology (Pázmány Péter Catholic University).
