Dr. Wyeth Wasserman

Dr. Wyeth Wasserman
Medical Genetics (UBC)

Faculty of Medicine

My research focuses on the computational analysis of DNA sequences. Increasingly my research involves multi-disciplinary collaborations with clinicians and molecular researchers working with genomes and genomics data. My laboratory creates software, databases, and innovative knowledge exchange systems. At present the team works on three inter-related components: (i) prediction of transcription factor binding sites in DNA sequences; (ii) analysis and interpretation of exome and whole genome sequence data with an emphasis on pediatric genetics; and (iii) knowledge exchange systems with an emphasis on collaborative creation of e-textbooks. We work with data on a genome scale, strive to better understand biological processes on a systems level, and develop innovative software for genome scientists.
