Our group focuses on research in computational biology and cancer genomics at the BC Cancer Agency in Vancouver BC. We are interested in understanding cancer genomes from the perspective of identifying pathogenic driver alterations and how tumours evolve over time. Our work involves the development of statistical models, algorithms and computational approaches to analyze large, high dimensional genomics and transcriptomic data sets derived from tumours in order to describe mutational landscapes of cancer subtypes and quantify clonal diversity and intratumoural heterogeneity. Much of our work is devoted to analysis and interpretation of next generation sequencing data applied in cancer-focused experimental designs.
