Metabolic networks consist of interacting biochemical reaction chains (i.e., pathways) that are responsible for essential cellular processes such as energy production, DNA synthesis, and lipid breakdown. Reactions in these networks are connected to each other through chemica ...
In database management systems, the estimation of selectivity is required to predict the cost of possible alternative execution plans for a given query. Many studies show that even very small inaccuracies in the cost estimates can cause the query optimizer to choose a subopt ...
Predicting promising academic papers is useful for a variety of parties, including researchers, universities, scientiﬁc councils, and policymakers. Researchers may beneﬁt from such data to narrow down their reading list and focus on what will be important, and policymakers m ...
Welcome to the Bioinformatics and Databases Lab at SEHIR. Our team consists of graduate and undergraduate research students and faculty mostly from Computer Science Department. However, due to the interdisciplinary nature of our research, we also collaborate with researchers from other domains, such as biology, genetics, and medicine. At a high level, our lab performs research in two major domains as summarized below.
Bioinformatics: We develop computational models and automated analysis methods for biological data. In particular, we focus on biochemical interactions (enzyme-enzyme and enzyme-metabolite) and metabolomics.
Data mining, data management, databases: We develop data mining and management algorithms to automatically predict variety of data pieces in diverse applications that range from predicting high impact scientific papers to mining graph and text patterns in biomedical databases.
We are looking for graduate and undergraduate students to participate in various research projects! Candidates with good programming and analytical thinking skills are encouraged to apply. Research assistantship with TUBITAK support is available for qualified promising graduate students. Please drop an email with your CV if you are interested in.
