Computing on genetic networks to chart the rules of life

Chad Myers’s research focuses on developing data mining and machine learning methods for analyzing large-scale genomic data to understand how genes function, and more broadly, how biological systems are organized. His lab has developed approaches for mapping, analyzing, and integrating biological networks to answer questions in a variety of systems from yeast to humans. Myers’s work has advanced our understanding of how genome variation affects traits.
