The Final Word on STAP

Researchers fail to replicate STAP study; computational analysis reveals genomic inconsistency

abstract green imageDBMI's Peter Park, HMS associate professor of biomedical informatics and co-senior author on a pair of papers in the September 24 Nature, developed a set of algorithmic tools to analyze the genomic data from the original controversial STAP study.
