Abstract
I will give a two-part talk that starts with a discussion of my groups research on genomic profiling in human populations, and leads to a presentation of my vision of the relationship of the Center for Integrative Genomics to the IBB and Systems Biology programs at Georgia Tech. We are broadly interested in the question of how environmental and cultural factors interact with genetic predisposition to shape human phenotypic variation, from gene expression in peripheral blood to facial expression in growing infants. Genomic profiling is built around genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of gene expression, metabolomics, and epigenetic marks in a variety of cohorts available through collaborators at Emory and our own contacts in places like Fiji and Morocco. I'll discuss the Center for Health Discovery and Wellbeing cohort at Emory midtown, as well as initiatives in cystic fibrosis, cardiology, cancer survivorship, and newborn children.
