We are a computational genomics group in the Center for Public Health Genomics at the University of Virginia. Our research marries genetics and genomics techniques with computer science, machine learning, and engineering to develop new ways of gaining insight into genome biology and the genetic basis of traits. We try to tackle problems with practical importance to understanding genome variation, chromosome evolution and mining genetic variation for improved understanding of human disease. Understanding the genome is a hard problem; we try to develop new approaches to make genomic research easier.
