SFARI Investigator Website

The Devlin lab has two major foci, the development or refinement of statistical methods for analysis of genetic data and the implementation of such methods to discover the genetic basis of disease and related phenotypes. On the statistical front, the lab’s major efforts involve methods appropriate for large-scale genetic studies. Much of their empirical work targets characterization of the genetic basis of autism spectrum disorder.
