Sasha will be presenting a platform talk entitled “Transcriptome-wide association study of schizophrenia and chromatin activity yields mechanistic disease insights.” at the American Society of Human Genetics 2016 meeting in Vancouver. The talk is on Thu, Oct 20, 10:15am - 10:30am in Room 302, West Building. See the corresponding pre-print.
Gleb Kichaev from the Pasaniuc lab will also be presenting collaborative work in a talk entitled “Transcriptome-wide association study of thirty complex traits reveals novel risk genes.” at 9:00am in the same session. See the corresponding pre-print.
