Statistical and Translational Genetics

Research strategy

We use genetic screens in Finnish population and disease samples to learn about disease mechanisms and risks. Cardiovascular diseases and risk factors are often used as models for genetics of complex diseases and statistical methods development. Our research is based on statistical genetics approaches in studying Finnish large-scale population and disease-based cohorts and family collections with genome-scale sequence data and rich sets of phenotypes.
