Welcome!

The Bioinformatics Technology Lab at the BC Cancer Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre in Vancouver, Canada is a computational biology research group. We develop novel algorithms, data structures and genome analysis software and offer a complete and scalable solution (figures below) for de novo genome assembly. The bioinformatics tools we build find applications in cancer research, and are the foundation of our genome research program.
