Computational Genomics

We combine computational and experimental approaches to further understand genetic and phenotypic variation on a genome-wide scale. Our research is articulated along two axes: advancing our understanding of gene regulation through quantitative modeling and developing methods to study the mechanisms by which genetic variants condition phenotypes.
