JoshStuart

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. 

Staff

ChrisWong Chris Wong - Staff
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.
