Next-generation sequencing instruments produce a huge number of short DNA 'reads', each of which carries little information by itself. These reads therefore have to be pieced together by well-engineered algorithms to reconstruct biologically meaningful measurements. The lab's goal is the development of accurate mathematical models, efficient algorithms, and usable software to solve these complex, high-dimensional puzzles. Read more...
