Brief description While genetics refers to the gene sequence, or DNA code, epigenetics refers to all the other factors that control how and when each gene is expressed. New technologies with the ability to sequencing billions of bases of DNA are now being used to study epigenetics. However the data sets are vast and complex. I use statistical and computational approaches in the emerging field of bioinformatics to make sense of this data and relate genome wide disruption of epigenetic marks to diseases.
