Chikina Lab

Using large-scale genomic datasets we develop new machine learning models that facilitate discovery and interpretation. We work on a variety of biological problems ranging from multi-omics analysis to molecular evolution.

We work with genomics data consortia

ECHO We are part of the Epigenetic CHaracterization and Observation (ECHO) . The program is building a man-portable device that analyzes an individual’s epigenetic “fingerprint” to potentially reveal a detailed history of that individual’s exposure to WMD or their precursors.


Our group is part of the Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity Consortium (MoTraPAC) . This is a large study looking at the effects of exercies through multiple genomic assays.

Our collaborations leverage our strong biomedical community
