Systems biologist Yasuhiro Murakawa directs the RIKEN-IFOM Joint Laboratory for Cancer Genomics.
He graduated from Kyoto University School of Medicine in 2008. While he was a medical student, he studied DNA repair in the Shunichi Takeda lab in the department of radiation genetics.
Our lab uses the computational and experimental approaches to investigate new functional elements encoded in the human genome that function in human health and cancer. To gain fundamental insight into cancer development and maintenance, we decipher the cis-regulatory code that governs the transcriptional landscapes of malignancies.read more
