Dr. Kingsford’s research is focused on developing new, efficient algorithms for extracting knowledge from large biological data sets, particularly high-throughput DNA and RNA sequencing data. He has worked recently on algorithms for accurately quantifying gene expression, identifying compact regions of chromatin, and large-scale sequence search, among other topics. His group typically explores solutions using optimization and graph algorithms.
