We are a computational biology lab within the Department of Biological Chemistry in the David Geffen School of Medicine and also part of the Computer Science Department, the Computational Medicine Department, Interdepartmental Bioinformatics Program, the Institute for Quantitative and Computational Biosciences, the Broad Stem Cell Research Center, the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Molecular Biology Institute at UCLA.

The focus of the lab is on developing and applying computational methods to address problems in epigenomics, regulatory genomics, and non-coding genome interpretation. Please see the publications page to learn more about the lab's research. You can follow us on twitter or google scholar to be notified of new publications.
