Scott R. Diehl
Purpose of center:
The mission of the Center is to capitalize on the abundance of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) and other forms of inherited variation in the human genome to advance our understanding of the molecular causes of disease and of differences among individuals in response to drugs and other therapies. Some of these SNPs are likely to affect gene and protein function. However, it is a great challenge to discover which variants among the millions present in the human genome are most important clinically, and so high-throughput assays are being developed and optimized to accelerate this research.
