Gabor Marth, D.Sc.
Dr. Marth is Professor of Human Genetics at University of Utah and an internationally recognized expert in DNA sequence variation detection and analysis software development.
He has served as:
- SAB Chair for Ontario Institute of Cancer Research Program in Computational Biology
- Chair of Exome Sequencing Group of the 1000 Genomes Project
- Co-Director of USTAR Center for Genetic Discovery
Dr. Marth co-developed the first probabilistic algorithm for sequence variant discovery, developed several of the most widely used file format standards for genomic data, and developed the first complete software suite for genome-scale analyses of high throughput sequence data.
The Marth research group develops algorithms and software packages for genetic variant discovery and data visualization in next-generation sequencing data; understanding tumor clonal evolution at the cellular level leading to tumorigenesis, chemo-resistance, and metastasis; as well as web-based tools for interactive, real-time, visually driven analysis of biomedical big data.
