The working groups serve to create links between research groups and facilitate the sharing of expertise and perspective, resulting in a richer research environment and more opportunities for exploring external funding. Usage of the working groups is flexible enough to meet the varying needs of different research groups. Through the utilization of resources like shared trainees, collaborative meetings, and online tools, StatGen provides researchers with the tools they need to do better science.
Our current working groups include:
•Statistical methods for the interpretation of genomic perturbation assays
•ML methods for predicting regulatory impact of genomic variation
•Identifying sequences subject to purifying selection both within and between species
•Primate regulatory genomics
