Tommy Kaplan

Our research interests include Computational Genomics and Machine Learning, and Transcriptional Regulation, and focus on DNA packaging, chromatin and epigenomics, and the role of distal enhancers in shaping the transcriptome in fly, mouse and humans, during development and in various cell-types and cellular conditions.

Tommy got his PhD in Computer Science and Computational Biology from the Hebrew University, under the supervision of Prof. Nir Friedman and Prof. Hanah Margalit. He then conducted post-doctoral research with Prof. Michael Eisen at the University of California, Berkeley. In 2012, Tommy returned to Israel and opened his computational research group at the Hebrew University.
