At the recent State of the Science Summit in Salt Lake City, faculty from the University of Utah delved into biomarker discoveries, research, emerging treatment modalities, and practice-changing trials that have changed the paradigm. ... Read MoreInternal Medicine
The Genetic Epidemiology Research Program within the Division of Epidemiology is devoted to studying the role of genetic factors in determining health and disease in families and populations, and the interplay of such genetic factors with environmental factors. Our mission is to understand the genetic nature of complex diseases and to use this knowledge to treat, and eventually prevent, such illnesses.
We strive to:
- Use clean, high quality data
- Use both established and innovative data analysis methods
- Work collaboratively with experts in multiple fields
- Deliver results that expand the collective knowledge of the scientific community

gsSKAT: Rapid gene set analysis and multiple testing correction for rare-variant association studies using weighted linear kernels
Next-generation sequencing technologies have afforded unprecedented characterization of low-frequency and rare genetic variation. Due to low power for single-variant testing, aggregative methods are commonly used to combine observed rare variation within a single gene. ... Read MoreInternal Medicine
