Statistical Genetics

Celia Greenwood is interested in statistical methods for the analysis of genetic and genomic data.  Recently, her group has been focusing on ways of characterizing tumour abnormalities, analysis methods for rare genetic variants such as those identified by sequencing studies, and analysis of DNA methylation data.

She is an integral part of the Genetic Epidemiology group at the Lady Davis Institute and the Segal Cancer Centre, where she is supported by the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers. 

The Greenwood lab constitutes the statistical genetics component of the Ludmer Centre for Neuroinformatics & Mental Health, which develops and implements methods for integrating behavioural phenotypes, epigenetic, genetic and brain imaging data.
