Peter Park's Biography

Peter Park, Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School

Dr. Park is Associate Professor of Pediatrics and leads a computational genomics laboratory at Harvard Medical School.  Originally trained in applied mathematics at Harvard and Caltech, he was introduced to molecular biology and genomics while carrying out his postdoctoral studies in biostatistics at Harvard.  His laboratory specializes in understanding chromatin structure and its relationship to gene regulation using ChIP-sequencing data, as well as in characterizing the human genome based on whole-genome sequencing.  His laboratory is engaged in several consortium projects including the ENCODE and the Cancer Genome Atlas projects.  He is on the editorial board of Bioinformatics and an associate editor of BMC Bioinformatics.

Recent advances in NGS allow high-coverage sequencing of the human genome at an affordable cost.  We will describe computational methods for analysis of DNA copy number and structural variation, as well as their applications to detection of somatic variants in cancer genomes.
