Genomics and Bioinformatics

Research areas include cancer genomics, personalized medicine, comparative analyses, model organism, and microbial genomics and bioinformatics. Integrated genomics, bioinformatics, and systems biology approaches are developed and used. Several MBB faculty have joint appointments at the renowned Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre.

Microbe-loving bioinformatics and genomics research lab, aiming to better control infectious diseases and associated immune disorders in a sustainable way.
