John Quackenbush's Functional Genomics and Computational Biology lab at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute focuses on the application of functional genomics techniques—including microarrays, proteomics, metabolomics, and other high-throughput approaches—and the development of computational approaches in support of these studies to develop a comprehensive view of human diseases including cancer. Their goal is to develop software, databases, and bioinformatics techniques that will allow the development of new diagnostics and a more complete understanding of the cellular networks that are mechanistically responsible for diseases, and to make those tools widely and freely available to the research community to enable research beyond our own.
