Research Interests:

Research in the Lansdorp lab is focused on the role of genome instability in aging and cancer. For these studies we are mapping structural genomic variation such as polymorphic inversions of individuals onto their parental haplotypes using single cell DNA template strand sequencing (Strand-seq), a powerful technique developed in our lab1-6.
