Computational Medicine. His research seeks to discover the relationships between genetic variation and disease in humans using the tools of bioinformatics. His laboratory takes advantage of recently available human variation reference sets such as the HapMap to improve computational approaches for gene mapping. Other projects in Dr. Eskin's work includes developing methods for discovering the genetic basis of complex traits in model organisms, understanding the genetics of gene expression patterns, and predicting the molecular function of variation to better understand the role of variation in disease.
