Jeffrey A. Bailey, MD, PhD
Assistant Professor


Computational and experimental analysis of the role of segmental duplication and copy number variation in human disease.

     
garber  

Manuel Garber, PhD 
Associate Professor


To study the evolution of transcriptional control and non-coding RNAs in mammals through development and analysis of sequence-based molecular biology approaches.

     
 Elinor Karlsson  


Elinor Karlsson, PhD
Assistant Professor


My research uses evolution as a tool for understanding how the human genome works. By combining signals of natural selection with genome-wide association studies, I aim to identify genes, pathways, and the functional variants underlying polygenic diseases, and translate these discoveries into advances in human health care. I am currently applying these methods to understand infectious disease resistance in humans, such as cholera resistance in Bangladesh,  as well as behavioral genetics in dogs.
