Statistical Genetics
* Large-scale genetic association and sequencing analysis: estimating the effect size distribution accounting
for the winner’s curse, planning a discovery and/or replication study in terms of choosing a sample
size and a number of top-ranking loci to follow up, methods to adjust for multiple testing and statistic inflation
due to heterogeneous populations and/or cryptic relatedness

* Rare variant analysis: collapsing genetic effects with the adjustment for effect directions

* Multi-locus association approaches (utilizing functional information): combining genotype-based
statistics, haplotype-based methods, allele-combination methods, gene-based analysis, pathway analysis,
and protein network analysis
