Genetics, Genomics and Proteomics
From the identification of genetic mutations underlying disease, to the development of prognostic technologies that impact health care delivery, this area of research is critical to the pursuit of personalized and translational medicine.
Our researchers uncover how relationships between genes and/or proteins are set and integrated within large molecular networks. These networks ultimately determine the fate of cells and organisms.
Our laboratories encompass a wide array of biological and clinical settings related to the understanding of diverse health and disease states.
These laboratories investigate processes such as:
- molecular evolution
- chromatin structure and function
- structural analysis of nucleic acids and proteins
- repetitive DNA
- genome stability
- copy number variation
