CURRENT RESEARCH LABS
Much biological data is semantic, making it a difficult substrate for computation. My research interests are centered on organizing biological data in ways that make it more amenable to computation. I am particularly interested in the development of ontologies that describe biological knowledge and provide a means for detailed analysis of associated data.
Our group conducts hypothesis-driven translational research in biomedical informatics that focuses on the use of big clinical or genomic data, knowledge technologies, and networks to accurately personalize our understanding of the pathology, progression, and treatment for diseases.
We are a hard working group of geneticists and computational biologists at the University of Utah in the Departments of Human Genetics and Biomedical Informatics. We're committed to developing and applying cutting-edge methods to the understanding of genome biology and the genetic basis of disease. Working in our lab is a unique opportunity to apply and learn large-scale genomics methodologies and to make an impact on our understanding of human diseases. Please contact us if you are passionate about future work in this area.
