Simon Kasif, Ph.D.

Our goal in the lab of Dr. Kasif is to collaborate with biologists in the design of novel biological experiments that can be coupled with innovative computational analysis and modeling in order to improve our understanding of gene function. Biological organisms are qualitatively modelled as probabilistic networks of genes and proteins generating cascades of induction and regulation of other genes and proteins. In addition to identifying new genes and assigning them broad biological functions, the lab is involved in building qualitative or probabilistic computational frameworks that can integrate experimental data and provide us with the ability to predict with high accuracy the behavior of cells in normal or perturbed conditions. Such analytical capabilities will have a strong impact on drug design and screening, diagnostics as well as basic biological and medical sciences.
