Dr Jennifer Asimit

MRC Methodology Research Fellow - Statistical Geneticist


This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.

My research interests lie in statistical methodology development for the analysis of genetic data, including next-generation sequencing. Currently, I am focused on methods for the overlap analysis of a collection of traits, though other interests include rare variant analyses and trans-ethnic fine-mapping. I am also interested in developing analysis approaches that incorporate prior biological knowledge, such as functional annotation and biological pathways.

I have developed methods and software for rare variant association analyses, ARIEL and AMELIA, as well as for the overlap analysis of traits, BOAT.
