The quantitative interpretation of biological data requires the use of computer assisted approaches. A first approach consists of the statistical analysis of data in order to support relevance and significance of biological observations. A second approach deals with the elaboration and the computer simulation of models in order to test the validity of intuitively proposed schemas of regulation pathways. 

They specialized in DNA microarray which has applications to cancer biology and diagnosis include molecular tumor classification, drug sensitivity, or identification of tumor-specific molecular markers.

They specially focuss on breast cancer transcriptomic, RNA editing, cancer immunity, applied epistemology and thyroid cancer and radiation.
