Welcome to the Molecular Genetics and Bioinformatics Laboratory (GeMBio). GeMBio is a research laboratory from the University of the State of São Paulo (Unesp), School of Medicine, Brazil.

    Our group is strongly oriented towards:
        - Immunogenomics, especially the evolutive history, function, genetic variability,
          and regulation of genes of the HLA and KIR complex;
        - Disease association studies, especially autoimmune diseases and gestational problems;
        - Forensic genomics research, genomic ancestry;
        - Bioinformatics and the development of tools to study highly polymorphic genes;
