Statistics and Applied Math

  Name Research
Yoseph Barash The lab develops machine learning algorithms that integrate high-throughput data (RNASeq, CLIPSeq , PIPSeq, etc.) to infer RNA biogenesis and function, followed by experimental verifications of inferred mechanisms.
Danielle Bassett Complex Systems | Network Science | Computational Neuroscience | Systems Biology | Dynamical Systems |
Soft Materials | Behavioral Network Science
Mary Regina Boland Developing novel data mining and machine learning algorithms that integrate data from Electronic Health Records, observational health data and genetics.
Casey Brown Our research focuses on how genotypes produce phenotypes and how they vary and evolve.
Pablo Camara The focus of our lab is on the development and application of innovative computational approaches to the study of cellular heterogeneity and its role in disease.
