We are a research group in the Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Human Genetics Depts. in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA that does research in computational genetics and bioinformatics. We are also affiliated with the interdepartmental Bioinformatics program and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center at UCLA

We are interested in developing computational and statistical methods for understanding the genetic architecture of common human diseases. We are particularly interested in methods that leverage the genetic diversity across and within populations for large scale studies. For more details please see our research projects and publications.

Upcoming Talks:


  • PAINTOR software for fine-mapping with ENCODE functional data can be found here.
  • Wen-Yun thesis defense can be seen here
  • Software for imputation from summary association statistics is available for download. We also provide imputed association statistics for 4 lipids phenotypes analyzed by Teslovich et al.


  • We are recruiting talented postdocs/students interested in developing computational and statistical methods for medical genetics! See here how to apply.
