The overall goal of our research is to identify and characterize the pivotal functional elements in the human genome.
In the long-term, we aim to model the functional elements of the human genome across tissues and cells into complete networks;
to then repair, re-engineer, or fortify these genetic networks. Toward this end, we leverage computational genomics and parallelized
bioinformatic algorithms to analyze data across integrative modalities of biology (genetic, epigenetic, transcriptional, and
metabolomic). These high-throughput next-generation sequencing (NGS) datasets are used to discern the most important molecular
signatures during development and disease.
Pathomap is a research project by Weill Cornell Medical College to study the microbiotic population and
genetic dynamics in urban areas in order to detect and respond to escalated microbial dangers
