The overarching goal of Olga Troyanskaya’s research is to predict and verify the biological function of genes and proteins within an organism by utilizing the power of computation to better harness the information found in diverse biological assays. Her current research areas include: genomic data intergration; gene expression analysis; gene and protein function prediction; detection and analysis of chromosomal abnormalities and functional evolution; integration of computation and experiments; identification of biological networks and pathways; evaluation and validation of computational predictions; and scalable visualization-based data analysis.
