Genomics of complex diseasesResearchers: Yu Peng

Complex diseases, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, are caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors. The non-Mendelian inheritance pattern of these diseases has defeated attempts to predict the occurrence of these diseases based on genomic information. We address this challenge by developing novel computational methods using systems biology approaches such as molecular pathways and networks.
