Yosuke Tanigawa is a Postdoctoral Associate at MIT Computational Biology Lab (PI: Dr. Manolis Kellis).

Yosuke works at the intersection of statistical genetics and computational biology. Specifically, he develops computational and statistical methods to dissect disease heterogeneity and apply them in systematic analyses of large-scale phenotypic, genetic, epigenomic, functional genomic, and single-cell genomic datasets.

Before joining MIT, he completed his doctoral training at Stanford University (Ph.D. in Biomedical Informatics), working with Dr. Manuel Rivas and Dr. Gill Bejerano.

Please check his CV, the Publications page, and his Google Scholar profile. He also maintains the Resources page, where you may browse datasets, analysis and visualization scripts, and web applications from his research activities.
