Brief description Recent advances in technology can determine the DNA composition of a person for much longer stretches of DNA, at a much cheaper cost. I use statistical analysis to identify regions of the human genome that harbour mutations that cause diseases such as epilepsy in families. These regions contain 5-15 million base pairs. We need to find the ONE base pair that causes disease. This application deals with the development of new tools to exploit new technology for the identification of mutations.
