Gabor T. Marth, DSc


My research focuses on development of DNA sequence analysis software. Over the past 15 years, my group has developed software to aid genome sequence completion (finishing), for single-nucleotide polymorphism discovery, for population genetic analysis of genomic variation data. We have developed software packages for base calling, read mapping, variant discovery, and data visualization in high-throughput, next-generation sequencing data. My current research is aimed at developing complete, automated pipelines for sequence processing, variant detection, and variant interpretation; adapt and extend our tools for cancer sequence analysis, and at developing informatics technologies to support population, medical, and personal genome sequencing of very large numbers of samples.
