Dr Ioanna Tachmazidou
This person is a member of Sanger Institute Alumni.
My research interests are on all aspects of statistical genetics, and in particular in the genetic etiology of common disease. My current work is primarily focused on analyzing whole genome sequence data for metabolic related traits, as well as developing statistical methodology and software for the discovery of disease susceptibility loci. My research interests include: fine-scale mapping, design and analysis of sequence studies and rare variants analysis, multivariate analysis of sequence data, Bayesian survival analysis, Bayesian inference and model selection. I am involved in a number of international consortia, including the AGVP, UK10K, SCOOP, HELIC, and the INCHARGE projects.
