Research Abstract

We are interested in the underlying genetic basis of human disease. Diseases under investigation in our lab include the common inflammatory diseases of the skin and joints, psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and a particularly virulent cancer of the eye (uveal melanoma). We use genetic and genomic approaches such as genome-wide association studies, genetic linkage analysis, exome capture, targeted capture, and Next Generation sequencing to achieve our goals. To examine the systems biology of disease states we are using Next Generation sequencing to identify differentially expressed mRNAs and non-coding RNAs (including microRNAs) and modeling the altered networks. Effects on the epigenome in disease are also being investigated with genome-wide methylation studies followed by precise mapping of altered methylation sites. We recently identified a metastasis for suppressor for melanoma of the eye (BRCA1 associated protein or BAP1). We are continuing to investigate the genetic basis of this cancer with NexGen approaches including exome capture, RNASeq and whole genome sequencing. We are also screening for rare variants contributing to complex disease with NexGen sequencing approaches. Once identified we perform population-based screening of novel variants and statistical analyses to obtain evidence for their roles in disease. We also perform cell biology/functional genomic analyses to investigate the roles of the novel genes and how the novel variant contribute to disease states.
