BayesMendel Group – The BayesMendel working group is dedicated to the development of methodologies, models, and open source software for predicting who may carry a cancer susceptibility gene. We use statistical ideas that go back to Bayes and genetic models that go back to Mendel.
Department of Biostatistics and Computational Biology, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute – The department combines independent research, collaboration, and consultation in quantitative methods as they apply to cancer, the environment, and research into the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), as well as focusing on the application of functional genomics techniques – including microarrays, proteomics, metabolomics, and other high-throughput approaches – and the development of computational approaches in support of these studies to develop a comprehensive view of human diseases including cancer.
