Discovery and interpretation of human genomic variation contributing to micronutrient deficiency disorders

We are seeking a PhD student to work in a genomic medicine project in Dr. Castellano’s group using population approaches. The aim of the project is to understand the genetic architecture of micronutrient deficiencies. That is, to characterize the number, age and type of genetic variants, their population frequencies and the magnitude of their contribution to the risk of micronutrient deficiency or toxicity in humans today. Such deficiencies have been pervasive in human history and may have resulted in old and common genetic variants contributing to disease risk.

Please, see the ad for details.
