Decoding Genetic Variations and Regulatory Networks

Dana Pe’er pioneered the use of Bayesian networks, computational models that represent influences and interactions between variables, to understand the structure and function of molecular networks. Her research focuses on developing experimental and computational methodologies to decipher how a cell senses the environment and how its regulatory network processes signals, with a focus on how mutations cause dysfunctional regulation in cancer.
