3D Genomics and Osteoporosis

Expensive whole genome searches have revealed multiple genetic signals robustly associated with many diseases, but does not mean that the precise localization of the actual underlying causal genes has been achieved. Dr. Grant has worked on a ‘3D Genomics’ approach to physically connect these signals to the correct effector genes. He will use osteoporosis as an example, but the method has applications for most common diseases that blight society.
