Center Overview

The Center for Computational and Quantitative Genetics (CCQG) is a highly interdisciplinary program that seeks to catalyze research and training across Emory University at the interface between statistical/computational sciences and human genetics. The vision of the CCQG is to create an intellectual home for quantitative and computational scientists to collaborate on ongoing topics in genetics-oriented precision medicine efforts. The CCQG will promote the development of valuable statistical and computational tools for precision-medicine efforts and also assist in the application of such tools to relevant genetic studies of human health and disease. The CCQG also will foster a valuable training environment for predoctoral students and postdoctoral fellows pursuing careers in quantitative and computational genetics.
