Dr. Kaundal's research: information to inference in OMICS data science

Biological data is accumulating faster than people’s capacity to analyze them. Our research interests and goals revolve around mitigating this issue in the context of “information to inference” scope. At USU, Dr. Kaundal has developed an independent and collaborative research program in bioinformatics, primarily focusing on computational mining of large multi-dimensional -omics datasets, and computational modeling using supervised (Machine Learning) and unsupervised (Bayesian-based) learning. Our group is actively developing novel tools and software to apply the gained knowledge towards organismal improvement. Research in KAABiL laboratory generally falls under the following major program objectives:
