The Bejerano Lab studies genome function in human and related species. They are deeply interested in the following broad questions: Mapping genome sequence (variation) to phenotype (differences) and extracting specific genetic insights from deep sequencing measurements. They take a particular interest in gene cis regulation. They use their joint affiliation to apply a combination of computational and experimental approaches. The lab collects large scale experimental data; writes computational analysis tools; runs them massively to discover the most exciting testable hypotheses; which they proceed to experimentally validate. They work in small teams, in house or with close collaborators of experimentalists and computational tool users who interact directly with our computational tool builders.
