Daniel Lazarev

Daniel is a Graduate Student in the Neale lab. He is developing a method based on the Maximum Entropy Principle to construct multilayer SNP-phenotype networks given GWAS data. He is generally excited about how simple yet powerful variational principles, such as Maximum Entropy, can be developed, extended and applied to problems in biology and medicine. […]

Jacob C. Ulirsch

As part of a statistical genetics and experimental genomics research group, my work focuses on developing and applying novel methodologies to gain biological insights into genetic association signals. Specifically, I am involved in several projects to improve genetic fine-mapping for biobank-scale GWAS studies. Ultimately, we plan to test these results using massively parallel reporter assays […]
