Developing strategies for efficient genetic diagnosis and disease mapping in high-throughput sequencing data
Recent technological developments have made high-throughput sequencing cheap and accessible. However, the downstream analysis of the enormous amounts of data is becoming a major bottleneck.
About the project
The goal of this project is to develop and implement statistical methods for applying sequence data in disease mapping . The main focus will be family based studies of monogenic disorders. The project is executed by Post-doc Magnus Dehli Vigeland and funded by South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority.
