The lab specializes in large-scale statistical analyses of genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic data, boosted by artificial intelligence approaches. Fran obtained his PhD in Molecular biology in 2010 from the University of Zagreb, while working as an early-stage researcher at the RBI (Croatia) on machine learning in comparative genomics. This was followed by a postdoctoral stay at the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) as a Marie Curie fellow, studying cancer genome evolution. In 2017 he started his lab at the IRB Barcelona as a "Ramón y Cajal" tenure-track fellow, and in 2024 started a group at the Biotech Research & Innovation Centre (BRIC).
