Welcome to the Pickrell lab. We are a computational genomics lab that develops novel statistical approaches to transform large-scale genomic data into improved understanding of human biology and history. Much of our work is focused on understanding natural human variation. What are the evolutionary and molecular mechanisms that lead to differences in phenotypes and disease risk between individuals?
We’re located at the New York Genome Center in lower Manhattan, and are affiliated with the Department of Biological Sciences at Columbia University.
We are currently actively looking to expand our group: join us.
