The Hansen lab is led by Kasper Daniel Hansen.

The lab is associated with the McKusick-Nathans Insitute of Genetic Medicine and the Department of Biostatistics at Johns Hopkins University. We are part of Center for Computational Biology.

Research Interests

We are a computational biology lab, interested in analysis of high-throughput experiments. Areas of special interest are epigenetics (particular DNA methylation), gene expression, and biases in high-throughput technologies.

A selection of current topics in the lab:

  • Understanding selective pressures on chromatin in humans
  • RNA velocity in single cells
  • Ultra-large (200,000+ samples) scale analysis of RNA-seq data
  • Using genetic techniques to understand epigenetics by studying Mendelian disorders of the epigenetic machinery
  • Analysis of DNA methylation and other epigenetic marks using Nanopore sequencing
