Insights from methylome analysis

Professor Beck’s laboratory has broad interests in the genomics and epigenomics of phenotypic plasticity in health and disease. In addition to genetic variations, they study epigenetic variations such as DNA methylation, histone modifications and microRNAs and how they modulate genome function. Central to their research is the development of systems approaches for integration of multi-dimensional data and their application to epigenome-wide association studies (EWAS) in cancer and other common diseases to advance translational, regenerative and personalized medicine.
