Gamze Gürsoy PhD

Assistant Professor of Biomedical Informatics
Gamze Gürsoy is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Biomedical Informatics at Columbia University and a Core Member at the New York Genome Center. She is also affiliated with the Department of Computer Science. Her research group develops privacy-preserving tools to analyze and understand large-scale omics data in relation to diseases and phenotypes with a particular interest in developing software, file formats, and pipelines that enable broad sharing and analysis of sensitive genotypic and phenotypic data in public servers. Her lab also develops tools to map the regulatory wiring of the chromatin to interrogate the effect of three-dimensional organization of genomes on molecular phenotypes. The computational work in the lab is supported by experimental approaches, creating opportunities for trainees in cross-disciplinary studies. More information can be found here.
