Our Research Group

We research in the areas of computational biology, biostatistics, and systems biology. Our activities include the development of mathematical and statistical models, their implementation in computer programs, and application to biomedical problems. We have active research projects on HIV drug resistance, the somatic evolution of cancer, haplotype inference from ultra-deep sequencing data, and reconstruction of signaling pathways from RNAi screens.
