Research Project:
Map Chromosome Conformation in ASD and Unaffected Control Human Postmortem Cortices
My research in the Geschwind lab mainly focuses on generating 3D map of the genome from postmortem brain samples of individuals with autism and those who were unaffected, across different age groups. We hope that by comparing ASD 3D genomes to the neurotypical ones, we will identify genomic conformational signatures of ASD, and understand how common genetic variants exert effects on regions that interact with them.
