Research Interests

My general interest is the understanding of causes and consequences of genetic sequence variation. My main current interest is the integration of data obtained using methods such as expression microarrays and other techniques to quantify expression with linkage or association analysis to study phenotypic variation and its relationship with human disease, in particular of common diseases with a complex genetic component. Other areas of interest include mechanisms mediating instability of sequences such as microsatellites and the relationship between phylogenetic and pathological variation in humans.
