To what extent is it possible to predict the phenotypic differences among individuals from their completely sequenced genomes? We use model organisms (yeast, worms) to understand when you can, and why you cannot, predict the biology of an individual from their genome sequence. We are also actively applying the principles derived from our work in model organisms to cancer genomics.
