About the Karchin Lab

We develop computational models to interpret and predict the impact of individual variation in the genome, transcriptome, and proteome. The models are being applied to cancer genomics, unclassified variants in Mendelian disease genes, and complex disease genetics. In collaboration with clinicians, pathologists, and experimental biologists, we aim to make significant improvements in individualized medicine within the next five years.
