We are a small research group at the Penn State College of Medicine that works on statistical genetics, complex trait genetics and functional genomics. We actively develop novel methods and apply them to interesting datasets. We also generate datasets using high throughput genotyping and sequencing. More details can be found on our Research page, my faculty profile, or google scholar.

We are currently looking to recruit Ph.D. students to join our group (Fall 2018). If you are interested, please send the PI an email (first name dot last name at psu dot edu).

About the PI: Dr. Dajiang Liu joined Penn State in 2014 as an Assistant Professor and became an Associate Professor in 2018. He supervises trainees from the Bioinformatics and Genomics, Biostatistics and Neuroscience Ph.D. programs. He works closely with the Institute for Personalized Medicine. Before joining Penn State, Dr. Liu was a post-doc research fellow, working with Prof. Goncalo Abecasis at the University of Michigan. He obtained the Ph.D. degree in Statistics from Rice University under the direction of Prof. Suzanne Leal and Prof. Marek Kimmel.
