Unit 3 : Cancer genomics and clinical studies

This unit also focuses on developing Bayes methods for prediction/prognosis in cancer genomics and clinical studies.  Platforms have been made available to provide customized bioinformatics services for the study of pharmacogenomics, pharmacogenetics and other studies using high-throughput technologies, including SNP array, expression array, methylation array, microRNA array, RNAi screening and next generation sequencing. We also conduct genome annotation and databases mining to prepare for functional and mechanism studies.
