Dr. Sartor’s laboratory focuses on developing methods and tools for analysis of genomic and epigenomic data. This includes Bayesian models for prioritizing peaks in ChIP-Seq data, and methods for functional enrichment testing for proteomic, metabolomics, and ChIP-Seq (regulatory and epigenomic) data. The lab’s main biological focus is cancer, concentrating on oral cancers. Research ranges from developing statistical and bioinformatics methods to analysis and interpretation of experimental omics data to development of web-based bioinformatics tools.
