Tumor tissue is a complex system composed of tumor cells and multiple types of stromal cells. Our purpose is to understand the dynamic multicellular interactions in such a complexed biological system by measuring a large amount of data at the genomic level, which leads the identifications of therapeutic targets and biomarkers. Another objective in the graduate course is to learn the applications, methods and interpretations of the disease genomics and to understand how to apply disease genomics to clinical fields through analyzing clinical human samples.
