NIHR BRC-MH Bioinformatics Seminar series 2014 - Dr Chris Wallace, 1pm
After GWAS: using dense genotype data to identify causal genes and relevant tissues for type 1 diabetes Dr Chris Wallace (chris.wallace@cimr.cam.ac.uk) Association studies have now identified libraries of genetic markers associated with individual and multiple diseases in the population. But genetic variation doesn't cause disease. Rather, it influences the mix [...]
