Sequencing Target Enrichment in the Wild

Even as the cost of DNA sequencing continues to drop, there is still a strong interest among researchers to use techniques such as targeted enrichment to enable more focused sequencing of specific regions in a genome. The lower cost of sequencing allows researchers to increase the number of samples, depth of coverage, or panel size. For this talk, I will focus on three published studies which have used panels of nucleic acid probes for targeted enrichment in unique ways to accomplish their scientific goals.

Enabling Data Science for the Majority

Despite great strides in the generation, collection, storage, and processing of data at scale, data science is either out of reach, or, at the very least, extremely inconvenient for the majority of the population. The driving goal of our research is to help individuals and teams--regardless of programming or analysis ability--manage, analyze, make sense of, and draw insights from large datasets.

Improving Genetic Association Analysis Through Integration of Functional Annotations and Biobank Data

Continuing efforts from large consortia have made genome-wide epigenetic and transcriptomic annotation data available for a variety of tissue and cell types. These functional annotation data, in conjunction with rich phenotypic information in large biobanks, provide great opportunities for dissecting complex diseases’ genetic architecture. In this talk, I will present a few examples to demonstrate recent advances in data integration approaches in genetic association analysis.
