We seek to understand how DNA changes impact on human health and disease, and how genes and the genome act in normal development and physiology.
Our research harnesses the power of large genome-size and population data to reveal the complex nature of disease processes.
Section Head: Professor Chris Ponting
Our research focuses on mechanisms that maintain the stability of the genome between cells and between generations, regulate the expression of genes and how changes to these contribute to disease.
Section Head: Professor Javier Caceres
Our research aims to understand how changes in our genomes cause disease by studying patients and families as well as model organisms.
Joint Section Heads: Professor David FitzPatrick and Professor Ian Jackson
