Our group develops novel statistical and computational methods to address important problems in biology and medicine. We collaborate with research groups at Yale and other institutions to apply our methods to study the biological basis and treatment strategies for many diseases, including lung diseases, cancer, substance dependence, psychiatric disorders (major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, post-traumatic stress disorder), cardiovascular diseases, autism, congenital heart diseases, aneurysm, hypertension, and others. We also collaborate with plant geneticists and evolutionary biologists using next generation sequencing and microarrays to identify genetic associations with various traits.
