Computational Biology of Aging Group
The Computational Biology of Aging Group was founded by Robi Tacutu in 2016, and is part of the Department of Bioinformatics and Structural Biochemistry at the Institute of Biochemistry of the Romanian Academy. The group is currently funded by a €2 million EU grant for the project “Multi-omics Prediction System for Prioritization of Gerontological Interventions.”
Research areas of interest include biogerontology, systems biology and bioinformatics. The group's projects include both computational aspects—data aggregation and processing, multidimensional data analysis, network-based methods, systems theory approaches, deep learning—as well as wet-lab experiments, in particular, in vivo testing of computationally-predicted interventions.
