About

Prof. Michal Ziv-Ukelson Research Group in Computational Biology was founded in 2008 in the Department of Computer Science, Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel. The group is led by Prof. Michal Ziv-Ukelson and is pursuing active research in a wide variety of topics in computational biology.

rna Our team develops algorithms on strings and trees and tools for the analysis of biological data. We deal with various aspects of computational biology, with focus on RNA structure and function.
The group has established an international reputation, which can be seen through our projects, papers and awards.
