Berman Lab

Personal Statement

I am co-director of the Center for Bioinformatics and Functional Genomics (BFG) at Cedars-Sinai, with expertise in cancer epigenomics, functional annotation and prediction of noncoding gene regulatory regions, and whole-genome sequencing technologies. From 2008 to 2014, I was director of bioinformatics for the University of Southern California/Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center Sequencing Core, where my group developed software pipelines to analyze whole-genome bisulfite-sequencing (WGBS), ChIP-seq, RNA-seq and other NGS methods."
