Abstract

The development of high-throughput technologies and large international consortiums have generated a wealth of multi-omics data and increased our understanding of biological processes. However, we still miss the mechanisms underlying several diseases and strategies for their diagnosis, prevention and treatment.

Hence, we aim to decipher pathological conditions using multi-omics approaches, identifying molecular events to be further used as biomarkers and therapeutic targets. For the last years, we have integrated large-scale data to understand mechanisms regulating gene expression and to depict (epi)genetic events associated with aberrant transcription in cancer and increased intra-tumor heterogeneity. Here, I will present our past and current research, showing how interdisciplinary approaches can provide new insights into the oncobiology field.
