We are a bioinformatics research group in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Harvard Medical School. We are also affiliated with Division of Genetics at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard-MIT Division of Health, Science, & Technology

Our aim is to gain biological insights through computational and statistical analysis of genomic data. We specialize in analysis of epigenome and whole-genome sequencing datasets from cancer and other diseases, using high-throughput sequencing technology. We also collaborate with a number of superb experimental laboratories at Harvard Medical School and its affiliated hospitals, as well as around the world.
