Dr. Jones' team uses bioinformatics to investigate the landscape of mutations present in cancer genomes and the early genomic events that give rise to and promote the progression of cancer. To achieve these goals, his laboratory analyzes Next Generation Sequencing data and develops novel computational approaches and methodologies. A significant aim of Dr. Jones’ research program is to find innovative ways to exploit specific genomic profiles within an individual cancer for therapeutic purposes. For example, his team has identified a number of epigenetic modifications that may potentially be targeted to reverse the effects of cancer initiating mutations. His lab is using computational approaches, such as molecular docking and molecular dynamics, to identify and refine compounds that can modify the cancer epigenome.
