The Shendure Lab is part of the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington (Seattle, WA). Our mission is to develop and apply new technologies and methods for genetics, genomics and molecular biology. Most of our work exploits next-generation DNA sequencing which is effectively emerging as a broadly enabling “microscope” for the measurement of biological phenomena in the 21st century. Our ongoing work generally falls into six areas. These are listed below as links to representative publications or other materials.

Genetic Basis of Human Disease

Genome Sequencing Technologies

Translating Genomics to the Clinic

Massively Parallel Functional Genomics

Developing New Molecular Methods

Whole Organism Fate Mapping
