A Computational Biology Approach to Understanding Cancer

18 April 2011

In this interview from AACR 2011, Dr. Dana Pe'er, a computational biologist from Columbia University, explains how her research group is using a systems approach to understanding tumour specific drug responses. Dr. Pe’er is developing cutting-edge computational machine learning algorithms to piece these data together and identify how a cell's regulatory network processes signals and how this signal processing goes awry in cancer.
