Cancer is primarily a genetic disease, caused by genomic changes in the body cells. Next generation sequencing technologies have made it possible to study the genomic changes at molecular level. However, the genomic data is usually huge and noisy, which requires suitable statistical models and computational methods to analyze. During her study, Qianyun Guo has developed statistical frameworks to describe the mutation rates in cancer genome, which can be used to identify potential cancer drivers.

The PhD degree was completed at Bioinformatics Research Centre, Department of Computer Science, Aarhus University.

This résumé was prepared by the PhD student.
