The Perkins Lab uses bioinformatics and machine learning to answer cutting-edge questions in stem cell and cancer biology. We focus especially on the estimation and analysis of gene regulatory networks, as revealed by high-content assays (e.g. imaging) and high-throughput assays (e.g. microarrays, next-generation sequencing). We also conduct pure methodology research, developing new algorithms and mathematics relating to machine learning, bioinformatics, computational biology, stochastic processes, and biomedical imaging. We are part of the University of Ottawa and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.
