Team Shomron

Our Research

The Shomron research team focuses on the analysis of genomics aimed at understanding human disease. Combining high-throughput methods and bioinformatics, our team’s research explores DNA changes and gene regulators, such as microRNAs, in order to reach a global, systems perspective on the mechanistic roles DNA and RNA play during disease development.

Among our projects: Identification of a microRNAs that are in the intersection of several oncogenes; Revealing the influence of coding and non-coding RNAs on pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine; Profiling pathogens in human tissues based on deep sequencing of DNA and RNA molecules; Running advanced rapid DNA and RNA sequencing for real-time feedback in operative procedures.

Overall we aim to deepen our understanding of the development of diseases in order to generate a significant impact through translating ideas into clinical reality.
