Integrated Omic Analysis

Combining genomics and metabolomics

The Sara Cooper Lab is focused on integrating metabolomic and genomic data to understand the role that metabolism plays in human disease, with an emphasis on cancer. Our lab members have expertise in both biological and computational analysis, and we partner with clinicians to maximize the impact that our work has for patients. We have developed computational methods for integrating these data and applied these tools in pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer and neuropsychiatric disease. Our expertise in genomics and data analysis have been successfully matched with our clinical collaborators at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, who are our partners in our cancer studies. Our combined experience in the clinic, in the lab and in computation put us in a unique position to fully understand the rich genomic and metabolomic datasets.
