Arend Sidow, Ph.D.
Professor of PathologyStanford University
My research program is at the interface of experimental and computational genomics. With a background in molecular evolution, model organism genetics, and functional genomics, I have shaped my group’s interests to be broad, and we strive to apply concepts from one field to questions in another. Most recently we have focused on cancer genomics and evolution and on genome assembly and reconstruction. I emphasize rigor both in the lab and analytically. I co-founded the Joint Initiative for Metrology in Biology (JIMB), which seeks to advance measurement concepts and practice in genomics and synthetic biology.
