Information Integration Approaches to Discovering Biology in Genomic Data
Dr. John Quackenbush is Professor of Biostatistics and Computational Biology at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and Professor of Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at the Harvard School of Public Health.
Dr. Quackenbush completed a Ph.D. in theoretical physics followed by a two-year postdoctoral position in experimental particle physics and phenomenology. He joined the Helicos BioSciences' advisory board with extensive experience in the genomics field including mapping, sequencing, functional genomics and bioinformatics.
Currently, Dr. Quackenbush is focused on research projects that include the identification of expression fingerprints and genomic alterations that are relevant to colon and breast tumor metastasis, and the development of novel computational approaches for the interpretation of large-scale datasets and methods for data integration to facilitate gene discovery.
