Summary of Gerstein Lab Research in 2015

Highlights for 2015 include a number of technical computational biology papers, discussing such things as structural variant breakpoint analysis, regulatory network characterization in terms of logical circuits, and the identification of recurrent cancer variants.

We also participated in some major consortium papers (1000G, PsychENCODE, and TCGA Prostate & Kidney) and had some popular-interest pieces (eg a SF Chronicle op-ed on website egulation). There were a few important lectures (eg keynote at Genome Informatics '15).

Finally, we received new grants such as the renewal of the Yale CMG sequencing center.
