Welcome to the Shriver Laboratory!

Our Mission

  • Human population genomics
  • Mapping genes for complex phenotypes using admixture linkage disequilibrium
  • Mapping genes for common diseases (e.g. NIDDM, obesity, and hypertension)
  • The genetics of normal variation in common traits (e.g. skin and hair pigmentation, facial features and tooth phenotypes)
  • The construction and application of a US admixture map
  • High-throughput genotyping assays for SNPs
