Team Shomron

Our Research

The Shomron research team focuses on the analysis of genomics aimed at understanding human diseases. Combining high-throughput methods and bioinformatics (such as AI and deep learning), our team’s research explores DNA changes and gene regulators. Our goal is to reach a global perspective on the roles DNA and RNA play during disease development.

Among our projects: Identification of microRNAs that are in the intersection of several oncogenes; Revealing the effect 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 medical scenarios.

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

Tools Developed in Our Lab


Bayesian-based noninvasive fetal variant detector


Deep sequencing analysis of viral infection. Allows rapid and detailed characterization of viral mutant spectrum. Code will be supplied upon request.


Analysis of microRNA deep sequencing data.


A global view of homologous miRNA genes in numerous species.


Analyzes all known non-coding RNAs in a cell.

Pharmaco miR

Identifies associations of miRNAs, their regulated genes, and the drugs annotated in literature as dependant on these genes.


Web-based tool for homologous miRNA gene search in different species.


GenomeGems’ aim is to provide investigators with a simple tool for sorting, analyzing, prioritizing and visualizing the SNPs.

AMI calculator

Computes the risk of Acute Myocardial Infarction in patients reporting to ER with chest pain.
