Abstract:
Fourth annual Genomics and Computational Biology Symposium, a one-day symposium covering genome-wide association studies of neuropsychiatric disease; role of epigenetics in brain development; genetics of behavioral domestication in foxes; transposon activity in the nervous system; and genomic copy number changes between great apes and humans that relate to brain development.

Statistics at UC Berkeley: We are a community engaged in research and education in probability and statistics. In addition to developing fundamental theory and methodology, we are actively involved in statistical problems that arise in such diverse fields as molecular biology, geophysics, astronomy, AIDS research, neurophysiology, sociology, political science, education, demography, and the U.S. Census. We have forged strong interdisciplinary links with other departments and areas of study, particularly biostatistics, mathematics, computer science, and biology, and actively seek to recruit graduate students and faculty who can help to build and maintain such links. We also offer a statistical consulting service each semester.
