We use statistical modeling and algorithms to develop methods for analyzing large biological datasets. Particularly, we develop scalable algorithms for high-throughput genomic and transcriptomic sequencing data to study problems related to genome assembly, structural variation detection, and transcriptome analysis. We emphasize applicability of the methods and models to relevant biological and biomedical questions.
