Principal Investigator - Josh Stuart


Josh Stuart
My passion is to develop computational approaches that aid in the discovery of new fundamental biology to enlighten our understanding of evolution, cell fate decisions, and disease mechanisms. I have a particular interest in probablistic approaches that infer and leverage genetic pathway information to ground our analysis in intuition.

Hongxu Ding
My research focuses on developing computational and experimental tools for the analysis of single cells. These interests have led to projects addressing questions ranging from the development of novel algorithm for single cell transcriptional profile analysis to application of these algorithms to explore specific biological questions in cancer, development, and complex diseases, such as diabetes.

I am working on various data visualizations in support of various projects in the lab, including Observation Deck and circle map network graphs for the WCDT prostate cancer team and BMEG project. I also help with the UCSC Genomics Core project developing tools for their genomics data storage and pipelining system.
