Research

Structural Variant Discovery: Fast, statistical "next-generation methods" for discovery of genetic variants in next-generation sequenced human genomes.
Software: CLEVER & (soon) LASER

Cancer Systems Biology: Together with NKI and UvA we study genome organization in breast cancer and compute cross-platform-stable subtype markers.
See ABC Suite and Marker Computation Software.

Statistical Modeling: A special focus is on Markovian and latent variable, such as hidden Markov and mixture models. On the theoretical end, the emphasis sometimes is on algebraic aspects.
