Statistical genetics methods development and application

Shown are 8 likelihood traces from a Gibbs sampling algorithm, with the traces oscillating up and down, with further red vertical bars denoting when a complete re-sampling pass through all the variables has been performed

Our group has wide ranging interests but focuses in particular on statistical methods development that ultimately facilitates predicting phenotype from genotype. Predicting phenotypes from genotypes is a central goal of personalized medicine, and if done accurately would have major benefits for human health. However, to realize this goal, there are a number or hurdles which must be overcome, including understanding the contribution of genetic variants from across the frequency spectrum, as well as how they interact with the environment, and with each other.
