Welcome to the Frazer Lab! We are using two complementary approaches to achieve our goal of identifying and characterizing functional human genetic variants. Our first approach utilizes iPSCORE, a resource that was generated to enable both familial and association-based genetic studies of molecular and physiological phenotypes in induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and derived cell types. Our second approach involves conducting association studies in well-characterized cohorts with the goal of identifying variants that play roles in human disease and to assess their contributions to disease pathogenesis, progression, and prognosis.
