Our mission is to apply cutting edge machine learning methods to key problems in bioinformatics.
Common diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity, diabetes and psychiatric illnesses are caused by a combination of multiple genetic and environmental factors. We are collaborating with researchers at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute to perform genome-level analysis that integrates genetic and functional genomic data to study effects of multiple genes jointly.
