Our research focuses on the development of new algorithms, methods and software for analyzing genome sequencing data. We have a particular interest in new or emerging sequencing technologies that address the limitations of existing methods, so we currently work primarily on long-read sequencing. Our interests include genome assembly, variant detection in populations and cancer, detecting modified nucleotides and viral genome sequencing.
