Areas of Interest
Dr. Sartor’s laboratory focuses on developing bioinformatics methods and tools for analysis of genomic and epigenomic data. Research includes methods for ChIP-Seq and bisulfite sequencing data analysis, and methods for the functional interpretation of ChIP-Seq, RNA-seq and other NGS data. The lab’s biological focus areas are environmental exposures and cancer, especially head and neck cancers. We are discovering new subtypes of oral cancer and gaining insights into the effects of HPV integration into the host genome in oral cancers. Our research projects range from developing statistical and bioinformatics methods to the integrative analysis and interpretation of experimental omics data to development of web-based bioinformatics tools.
