The Center for Genes, Environment and Health (CGEH) has several domains of focus employed to uncover the complex interactions between genes, environment and disease.
Integrated Genomic Technology We develop and apply novel approaches for genetic and genomic analyses, including genome sequencing, genotyping (focused and genome wide), expression microarrays and epigenetic analyses.
Bioinformatics We provide support and advance the science of bioinformatics and computational analyses of complex genomic data from microorganisms to humans.
Epigenetics We investigate the importance of epigenetic mechanisms (DNA methylation, histone modification, and non-coding RNA effects on gene silencing) on the development and progression of immune mediated conditions, infectious diseases and lung diseases.
Infectious Disease Genomics We utilize a combination of genomics, transcriptomics, protein modeling, and bioinformatics to investigate disease-causing pathogens and the human response to disease.
