Research Interest

Modern DNA sequencing technologies provide tremendous power as tools to discover genetic alterations associated with diseases. The Morin laboratory uses these methods and sophisticated bioinformatics tools to read entire genomes of tumours to uncover the full suite of mutations that differ between tumour cells and healthy cells and infer those relevant to malignancy.
