Chair, Department of Biostatistics
Dr. Quackenbush and his group use a variety of bioinformatics and computational approaches, biostatistical analyses, and fundamental laboratory investigation to explore fundamental questions about the nature of human disease. Their approach is based on using high-throughput assays and applying “systems” methods integrate diverse datatypes, including the genome sequence, its annotation, genetic information, phenotype, and the vast body of knowledge captured in the literature. Their goal is not only to develop our own insight into these processes, but to instantiate our methods in tools, protocols, and databases to the broader community that will accelerate research beyond our own.
