The Knowledge Systems Group is an applied genomics software and data sciences group, focused on enabling cancer genomics research and precision cancer medicine at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.


We are currently focused on four areas of research and development:

First, we collaborate with MSKCC on the continued development of the cBioPortal for Cancer Genomics, an open source platform for mining cancer genomics data sets.


Second, we are actively collaborating with translational researchers and clinicians to mine genomic data generated by Dana-Farber's enterprise sequencing project --- now one of the largest databases of genomic data linked to detailed clinical data.

Third, we are building new genomic tools for clinicians, including a new clinical trial matching platforms for algorithmically matching genomic profiles to open clinical trials.


And, lastly, we are helping to build new cloud-based platforms for securely sharing genomic data across multiple cancer centers, while preserving patient confidentiality.
