Wouldn't it be great if we could have data mining tools that could digest everything there is and build models with which we could have an interesting, even enlightening discussion? Just like talking to some other person or colleague? I can't say that we are anywhere close. But my lab has in the past years developed some exciting algorithms that can help us digest large volume of data sets, visualize them in a number of fancy ways, and even fuse them all together into a single predictive model. For large-scale data fusion, we have lately tested some predictions in the wet labs and achieved some quite astonishing accuracy.

I also enjoy building things. My Bioinformatics Lab develops Orange, a data mining suite with a cool visual programming interface. We are also authors of dictyExpress, a simple gene expression analytics that has found much use within Dictyostelium research community. Our first popular web application was GenePath: it is over ten years old but still runs!

From August 2013 I am visiting Gad Shaulsky and Adam Kuspa Labs at the Department of Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. Thanks to Fullbright Scholarship, University of Ljubljana, and Baylor College of Medicine, and quite some very good people that helped me and my family in moving to Houston.
