How can we discriminate healthy and disease status in our body? We will study transcriptional networks and develop innovative analysis technologies based on next generation sequencing data to clarify differences between normal and disease cells, such as cancer. The team will also develop methods to identify biomarkers for early detection of disease, and applications to use genomics data to broadly understand biological function.
