Areas of Research
- Gene Expression
- Drug Development
Genomic studies involve the processing and analysis of high throughput genomic data generated by various platforms that need specialized personnel to work closely with biologists/clinicians to reveal the underlying biology. The Jianhua (John) Zhang computational genomics laboratory is embedded in the Department of Genomic Medicine with well qualified bioinformaticians/computational biologists to provide computational expertise to faculty members within the department and across the MD Anderson Cancer Center community as well as outside collaborators. The lab focuses on developing and maintaining the computational infrastructure for genomic studies, algorithm and software development, and customized downstream analysis of genomic data.
