Itsik Pe'er

Associate Professor

I study, develop and apply novel computational methods in human genetics. How is it best to measure, describe and quantify differences between individual DNA sequences? How does sequence variation affect biological processes? How can we use it to understand and influence human disease? All these questions pose complex analytical challenges, with direct impact on medical research.Web www.cs.columbia.edu/~itsik

Dana Pe'er

Assistant Professor

Dana Pe'er is associate professor at the Departments of Biological Sciences and Systems Biology at Columbia University. She received a Ph.D in Computer Science from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and continued her post-doctoral studies with George Church at Harvard Medical School. In particular, we study how genetic variation alters regulatory network function, subsequently phenotype in health and disease. This...
