Research Description

The Pachter Lab develops computational and experimental methods for genomics. We are currently focused on the development of single-cell genomics technologies and their application to RNA biology. The computational challenges we are addressing involve the analysis of high-dimensional data. Theorems are sometimes proven, experiments are occasionally successful, and software is distributed on GitHub. Our group includes students and postdocs with backgrounds in biochemistry, computer science, genetics, mathematics, molecular biology, physics and statistics.

Tata Consultancy partners with campus to interpret personal genomic variation

Thanks to initial funding from the India-based Tata Consultancy Services, the Center for Computational Biology has launched a pioneering initiative to develop a software platform to analyze differences in people’s genomes and bring closer the day when one’s personal genome will be a starting point for health and medical advice.
