Gene mapping and molecular epidemiology
Clinical and basic science colleagues have applied a range of molecular and bioinformatics strategies to identify the causes of disease or phenotype variability in unique populations in Manitoba and beyond.
Model organisms in genetic disease
Skills in the application of C. elegans, mouse, and yeast to understanding human genetic disease have allowed this group to develop and apply key models to human disease problems.
Genetics of metabolic disease
Members of this group study a broad spectrum of metabolic disease ranging from lysosomal storage disorders to disorders or the vasculature and ribosome.
