Statistical and Computational Genetics Methods Development
Principal Investigator: Brian Browning
Approved Research ID: 19934
Approval date: May 1st 2016
We will use UK Biobank data to develop statistical and computational methods for analyzing genetic data. This work will include methods for correcting errors in the data, methods for identifying genetic material that is shared by individuals due to inheritance from a common ancestor, methods for estimating population history, and methods for detecting genetic variants that are associated with a trait or disease. This project will develop statistical and computational methods that will be used to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of heritable disease. We will use the UK Biobank data to develop and test statistical and computational methods for analyzing genetic data, and to discover genetic variants that are associated with physical traits and disease. All available genotyped samples.
