Pathways/processes: Gene regulation, Epigenome
Teams/collaborations: Kelly Frazer, Bing Ren, Maike Sander
Approaches: High-throughput sequencing, statistical genetics, bioinformatics
Diseases: Type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, obesity, neurodegenerative disease


Our lab combines human genetics and epigenomics to understand how genetic variation affects transcriptional regulatory processes in specific tissues and cells, and how these processes contribute to complex diseases such as diabetes and obesity.
