Research Lab Results for evolutionary genomics
Alan Scott LabPrincipal Investigator:
Alan Scott, Ph.D.
Research in the Alan Scott Lab involves several important areas of genomics. Our team collabora...tes on a study to investigate the exon and genome sequence variants that determine phenotype, with a specific focus on the genetic bases of cleft lip and palate. We are also involved in assessing and improving genomic technologies to provide next-generation sequencing and analysis of sequence data to the clinical environment. In addition, we have a longstanding interest in the problem of gene annotation and the evolutionary genomics of vertebrates, especially endangered species. view moreResearch Areas: evolutionary genomics, sequence analysis, genomics, genome annotation, genomic technologies, cleft lip and palate
Salzberg LabLab WebsitePrincipal Investigator:
Steven Salzberg, Ph.D.
Research in the Salzberg Lab focuses on the development of new computational methods for analys...is of DNA from the latest sequencing technologies. Over the years, we have developed and applied software to many problems in gene finding, genome assembly, comparative genomics, evolutionary genomics and sequencing technology itself. Our current work emphasizes analysis of DNA and RNA sequenced with next-generation technology. view moreResearch Areas: computational biology, DNA, genomics, sequencing technology, biostatistics, RNA
