Clinical Bioinformatics 

Group’s major goal is to provide knowledge and medical decision support tools for the application of biomarker research in Personalized Medicine.

Ongoing projects under Dr. Aydın Son’s supervision includes GWAS of various diseases (RA, JIA, AD, schizophrenia, obesity&diabetes, Behçet's disease, Melanoma and other cancers) for identification of disease associated SNP biomarkers and developing Medical Decision Support Systems integrating SNP associations and clinical data. Also the most efficient and acceptable methods for the integration of developed MDSS into hospital information systems and medical records is within our focus.
Other topics of interest of the P.I can be listed as methylation and miRNA Biomarkers, Microarray Data Analysis, Systems and Synthetic Biology, Visualization and Animation of Biomolecular Data, Translational Bioinformatics and Bioinformatics and Health Informatics Education.
