NIH/NHGRI R01HG010086 (Zhi, Zhang) 06/01/2018-03/31/2022
Title: Scalable methods for identity by descent
Project Goal: The aim of the project is to develop and evaluate accurate and efficient methods and tools for detecting Identity-by-Descent (IBD) and local ancestry information in large genotyped cohorts, resources of increasing importance in the era of precision medicine. If successful, this project will advance genetic research by offering efficient informatics tools to researchers that can reveal detailed genetic relationships in very large genotyped cohorts.
