Basic & Clinical Genetics and Genomics


Center faculty apply a large number of advanced genetic and genomic tools and methods to discover the cause of human disease at its most basic level, of the sequence composition of DNA and RNA molecules including non-coding RNAs as therapeutic targets. Research topics include molecular-genetics and epigenetic imaging, developmental genetics, complex phenotypes, population genetics, mitochondrial genetics, epigenetics, reproductive genetics, genome defined “system inheritance”, and genetic network analyses, applied to a wide are of diseases, including cancer, diabetes, metabolic disease, retinal degeneration, and lung disease.
