Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
 
I am a Professor of Medicine, Biostatistics, and Computer Science at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, where I'm also Director of the Center for Computational Biology. My group's research focuses on the development of new computational methods for analysis of DNA from the latest sequencing technologies. Over the years we have developed and applied software to many problems in gene finding, genome assembly, comparative genomics, evolutionary genomics, and sequencing technology itself.

Our current work emphasizes analysis of DNA and RNA sequenced with next-generation technology. My blogs and other writing cover topics on the impact of science on society including the effects of pseudoscience, the problems of alternative medicine, the anti-vaccination movement, gene patents, and the influence of sports on higher education. See the links on my lab home page for my scientific publications, my opinion pieces, and other news.
