Leader of the Structural and Functional Genomics Lab in Małopolska Centre of Biotechnology at the Jagiellonian University


Principal Investigator

Tomasz is a group leader in bioinformatics at the Małopolska Centre of Biotechnology, Jagiellonian University in Kraków. He is working on the development and application of computational methods to better understand the function and dynamics of the human gut microbiome. The goal of his group is to build a multi-level understanding of the microbiome from genes, through structures, to functions and therapies. He obtained his PhD in biological sciences from University College London and did his postdoctoral training at the University of California San Diego.

We develop computational methods to understand the functions of the human microbiome. Our work involves method development to predict the structures, functions, and interactions of microbes and microbial proteins. We also analyse microbial data to understand how the changes in the microbiome impact human health. Specifically, in the context of mental health, type-1 diabetes, and inflammatory bowel disease. Long-term, we want to develop a multi-scale understanding of the microbiome, from genes, through structures, to functions, and therapies.
