Genomics Branch: Computational and Statistical

The genomic and genetic analysis takes place through an intensive approach application which is the main focal point of the Computational and Statistical Genomics Branch.
The investigators of this branch are experts in genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics. These fields include mathematics, epidemiology, statistics, computer science, and molecular genetics for identifying disease susceptibility.
Moreover, experts’ objective is to expand knowledge on the complexity of diseases and advance new statistical approaches to evaluate and analyze the spectrum of genetic data. Computational biologists …

Genomics Branch: Cancer Genetics and Comparative

Identifying and discovering genes that influence cancer progression and susceptibility is the objective of this branch.
The research study deals with cell mutations that have resulted in cancer exposure and progression of different aggressive cancers such as endometrial cancer, prostate, lung, bladder, gastric and neck cancers.
Inherited genetic mutation can result in the production of tumors that are acquired over time. Genomic alterations cause tumor growth and metastases in some cases. The investigation includes methodologies to expose genomic mutation that causes tumor formation and production.

Social and Behavioral Science Research

Enhancing optimal approaches to incorporate genomic discoveries into clinical practice is the main objective of a social and behavioral research study.
The research study involves a group of health conditions, from major health problems to unique genetic disorders that affect most families. In addition, the study includes the exploration of genomics and behavioral and social sciences as well as training future scientists and medical experts in this field.
Factors of genomic discovery
The scope of the study includes various groups of conditions and identifies how factors of genomics divide with …
