The purpose of our group is to provide bioinformatics support to the research community in MCCB. Our areas of greatest interest include data integration and data mining of high-throughput experiments such as ChIP-seq, ChIP-chip and microarrays. Working with MCCB researchers, we aim to develop and apply computational tools to analyze and integrate various data sources.
