Unraveling Evolutionary Patterns
We are using genomics to uncover clues about species extinction, to learn how to save vulnerable populations and to see what this teaches us about our future on earth.

Identifying the Underpinnings of Disease
Diseases like cancer have a unique genetic signature that can be digitized, deconstructed and compared with healthy biology. It’s a clinical problem with a computer science solution.

Pictured: UCSC’s Tumor Map plots individual tumors as colored dots that cluster together, forming a topology of genomic similarity. Researchers can make inferences about a particular tumor based on where it sits on the map.

Platforms for Life-Saving Treatments
We can match individual tumor RNA with tumors in the largest public cancer genome database in the world — uncovering potential treatment options for patients with “incurable” cancer.
