As part of the GIGA Conferences cycle, the GIGA-Medical Genomics Unit has invited Professor Jeffrey Barrett from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute (London).

 

The Barrett team studies how genetic variation affects risk for diseases, and finds ways to apply that knowledge to improve health care. They analyze genome-wide association studies and next-generation sequence data collected on thousands of individuals, and develop statistical and computational methods for these analyses.
