Project description

Studying expression of individual alleles could learn us more about possible molecular causes of diseases such as cancer, yet existing methods are too expensive or yield only incomplete information. In this project we will develop a novel, cheaper and more comprehensive methodology, based on population genetics concepts and statistical modelling, and demonstrate its relevance in a cancer case study.
