Coordinator: Jorge Ferrer

The Computational Biology and Health Genomics programme aims to increase our understanding of genome function in humans and all living organisms.  The programme has broad interests in topics ranging from human disease, genetic variation, regulation of genome function, biodiversity, and the evolution of genomes.  Members of the programme develop methods in computational biology, statistical genetics, and AI, and use innovative technologies to model genome function in health and disease.  

The programme hosts the EGA team at the CRG, which together with EMBL-EBI, manages the European Genome-Phenome Archive (EGA).

Integrated in a senior research group, Staff Scientists support the research of the group, while having a degree of scientific independence to lead their own research line (i.e. co‐mentoring of PhD students, being senior authors in publications and applying for grants). As Faculty Members, Staff Scientists are evaluated every 4 years by an external committee composed of SAB and ad‐hoc members in the framework of the Programme’s evaluation.
