Our research group investigates genetic predisposition to cancer, with parallel goals of elucidating causality and contributing to personalized medicine. We apply state-of-the-art genomics technology and custom bioinformatics in large-scale projects of breast and prostate cancer. We have also contributed genomics tools for the zebrafish model organism.
