A Focus on Statistical Genetics

The Purcell Lab in the Center for Statistical Genetics focuses on developing statistical and computational tools for the design of genetic studies, the detection of gene variants influencing complex human traits and the dissection of these effects in the larger context of other genetic and environmental factors. In particular, in close collaboration with the Division of Psychiatric Genomics, we currently work on whole exome resequencing and whole genome association studies of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia and the development of tools for whole genome and exome genetic studies.
