eMERGE is a national network organized and funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) that combines DNA bio-repositories with electronic medical record (EMR) systems for large scale, high-throughput genetic research in support of implementing genomic precision medicine.
Our lab's main interests are in:
- EMR data mining
- Development and validation of electronic phenotypes (e-phenotypes) based on EMR
- Gene mapping by combining e-phenotypes with DNA sequence information
- Development of electronic clinical decision support tools for return of genetic information
- Development of “smart” apps for integrative management of complex diseases and genetic disorders
