Todd Golub's laboratory focuses on the genetic basis of cancer, with particular emphasis on the utilization of new genomics and computer science approaches to cancer diagnosis and treatment planning. The laboratory has pioneered the use of DNA microarrays, or 'DNA chips,' for cancer diagnosis and is currently extending these techniques to gain insight into the molecular basis of human cancer. Part of this research effort involves the integration of computer science experts into the research group to extract clinically meaningful patterns from complex genetic information within tumors.
