Molecular Genetics & Epigenetics

Cancer is a disease that results from the accumulation of genetic and epigenetic changes, which drive aberrant gene expression and cell cycle progression. The Molecular Genetics and Epigenetics Program (GEN) brings together experts in genome stability, cell cycle, genomics, and epigenetics to form a strong base for a broad understanding of the carcinogenic state.

In addition, GEN has an extremely strong computational community to not only harvest the tremendous amounts of genomic data that is available but, more importantly, build new tools to use it to its fullest capacity.

The GEN program is led by:
