Description:
The focus of this project is on the ongoing development of iHMMune-align, a program for identifying and aligning the genes that make up antibodies. This software is increasingly used around the world by prestigious collaborators including a Nobel Prize winner, and has potential applications both in pure biological research as well as in the treatment of leukemia.

Although the general topic is bioinformatics, the project mainly involves software development and does not require much knowledge of biology (another project is offered for students with more biological knowledge)
