Research/Areas of Interest:

Our lab is actively applying a systems approach to study the genetics of health and disease, incorporating new statistical methods for the investigation of complex disease-related traits in the mouse. We are developing new methods and software that will improve the power of quantitative trait loci mapping and microarray analysis, as well as graphical models which aim to intuitively and precisely characterize the genetic architecture of disease.
