Coding genetic variation in type 2 diabetes and glucose homeostasis

Section for Metabolic Genetics

Project 
The aim of this project is to understand the role of genetic variation coding for proteins in the aetiology of type 2 diabetes and glucose homeostasis by performed exhaustive analyses of coding variation in thousands of individuals from the general population.

These investigations are performed in big international collaborations. The extensive data form the basis of a number of specific projects.

About you
For this project, we seek students with interests in genetics, diabetes and statistical analyses.

Candidates with a medical, a biological or a bioinformatic background are welcome to join this project.
