Genetics of complex diseases in Greenlandic inuit

Short biography
Associate professor Anders Albrechtsen is a researcher at the Department of Biology, University of Copenhagen. His work focuses on exploring high throughput genetic data for both demographic inference, finding signs of local adaptation in the genome and for identifying genetic loci that affects phenotypic traits and diseases. He is extensively involve in studies of the genetic basis of many complex diseases in Greenlandic Inuit.
