The Institute for Translational Genomics and Population Sciences consists of 3 core laboratories—the Laboratory for Biochemistry, Molecular Phenotyping, and Cell Line Repository; the Laboratory for Statistical and Mathematical Genetics; and the Laboratory for Molecular Genetics, Bioinformatics, and High Throughput Genotyping. The Genomics Institute Faculty have been extremely active in large scale genetic studies and both single cohort and in multi-cohort (and multi-ethnic) consortium efforts that have identified many genetic loci for cardiometabolic traits. We have contributed to the design stages, to performance of biochemical phenotyping, to large scale genotyping, and to statistical genetic analysis. The many loci we and our collaborators have identified are being utilized by ourselves and others to generate multi-loci genetic risk scores as powerful tools to dissect disease etiology and to perform risk assessment in populations. Besides our involvement in many large scale genome wide association studies (GWAS), we are now actively involved in large scale whole genome sequencing studies (WGS) and Multi-Omics studies.
