Center for Genetics and Development

The Center for Genetics and Development is focused on understanding how evolutionary processes and demographic history have shaped patterns of genetic variation among humans, and how such variation influences differences in physical features and disease susceptibility among humans.

Advancing Human Genetics

The CGD is creating a future where doctors can identify, plan for and even correct genetic defects before a child is born. Dr. Michael Bamshad and his colleagues have helped develop a technique that makes it faster and easier to identify disorder-causing genes, and are working toward therapies that disarm these genetic disorders.
