The Hibbs Laboratory: Searching for Tomorrow's Cures

Our research is focused on how we can best utilize high-throughput data sources to understand biology at multiple levels. This problem has become increasingly challenging over the past decade as new experimental techniques and resources have grown widely available and more affordable. While these data promise to shed light on cellular mechanisms, gene regulation, protein functions, and ultimately human disease, the rate at which these data are translated into knowledge is currently much slower than the rate of data generation. To help bridge this gap, we specialize in developing novel algorithms and approaches for the analysis, exploration and visualization of this data. We involve biologists early in our development cycle to leverage their existing, expert knowledge.
