We develop and apply advanced statistical methods to examine genetic data (DNA- and RNA-sequence data, SNP, methylation, mRNA and miRNA expression arrays,...).

We coordinate international projects and are responsible for the biostatistics in genetic studies on gallbladder, colorectal and breast cancers, irritable bowel disease, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases,...

Our major research areas are robust methods in statistical genetics, genetic association in families and populations, admixture estimation and admixture mapping, and statistical data integration.

Statistics in Genetics is a highly multidisciplinary field. Our group offers considerable expertise in Genetic Epidemiology, Population Genetics and applied Bioinformatics.
