Genome Sciences

The Shendure Lab is part of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA). The mission of our lab is to develop and apply new technologies and methods for genetics, genomics and molecular biology. Most of our work exploits next-generation DNA sequencing which is effectively emerging as a broadly enabling microscope for the measurement of biological phenomena. Our ongoing work generally falls into six areas: developing new molecular methods, genomic approaches to developmental biology, massively parallel functional genomics, translating genomics to the clinic, genetic basis of human disease and genome sequencing technologies.
