Project Start Date: Spring/Summer 2013
Project Title: Mapping genes to diseases in admixed populations through 1000 Genomes imputation.
Project Contact: Bogdan Pasaniuc (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Recently developed sequencing technologies have allowed for the collection of large repositories of human variation (e.g. 1000 Genomes project) that can be used to increase power for novel disease-gene discoveries.
This project will develop methods for incorporation of 1000 Genomes imputation in disease mapping in admixed populations (e.g. African-American, Latinos)
Required Experience: Experience with some programming language (C, C++, Java etc.), some background knowledge of statistics.
Possibility of Funding : Yes
