Research Summary

The genotype-phenotype problem is among the most fundamental in biology. Given the complete genome sequence of an individual, can we predict what traits they will exhibit? We approach this problem using a combination of genetics, genomics, and synthetic biology. We are currently using “The Awesome Power of Yeast Genetics” to analyze the functional impact of natural variation in human genes and to develop powerful experimental and statistical resources for delineating the genetic architecture of complex, quantitative traits in S. cerevisiae.
