The Analytical genomics of complex traits group, led by Eleftheria Zeggini, aims to help identify the genetic determinants of complex human traits by using next-generation association studies to detect novel disease loci. The overarching goal of the group research is to elucidate the aetiopathological underpinnings of complex human disease. The team carries out large-scale studies to investigate the genetic architecture of complex traits, with a primary focus on cardiometabolic and musculoskeletal phenotypes. In doing so, the team identifies and addresses statistical genetics challenges by designing, evaluating and proposing analytical strategies.
