Evolutionary Processes Modeling

The Weghorn Lab is part of the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) in Barcelona, Spain. Our research focuses on analyzing evolving systems, particularly cancer tumors and the human population. We analyze sequencing and other biological datasets and develop mathematical and computational approaches to estimate selection. An important aspect of this effort is to investigate mutational processes and the heterogeneity of mutation rate. Ultimately, the information we are able to glean about the impact of genetic changes could aid in the description of novel biological mechanisms and with the treatment of cancer and other diseases.
