Research Summary/In Plain Language

Research in Plain Language

We determine the sequence of DNA and RNA samples.  These data allow us to identify genetic variations or mutations that cause or influence disease, to determine the targets of DNA-binding proteins, and to identify which genes are turned on or off. We also develop software that allows us to extract this information from the sequence data.
