Our group’s work addresses the genetic basis of complex traits and disease. We also have a strong interest in evaluating the impact of candidate functional variants on cell biology and in elucidating biological pathways that form complex phenotypes and shape risk for disease.
We currently focus on the following areas:
- obesity-related disease
- familial breast and ovarian cancer
- congenital female infertility
We apply next generation sequencing approaches, including exome sequencing, RNA-Seq, FAIRE-Seq, ATAC-Seq and ChIP-Seq and have set up multiple, flexible and user-friendly bioinformatics pipelines for data analysis. An added bonus of our work is that we are studying a high number of samples from the Greek population, which is one of the least studied populations in Europe.
