SP2 - Comparative and integrative computational analysis of distinct and shared genetic, epigenetic, and transcriptomic signatures in SUDsysis

In this SP we are using various databanks to do comparative GWAS meta-analysis and estimation of polygenic risk scores in SUDs and also doing comparative genetic signalling pathway analysis in SUDs.

The scientist are hereby using post-mortem brain tissue from different SUDs to study comparative genome-wide epigenetic and transcriptional alterations and hypothesis-driven analysis in signalling pathways - also on a single cell level.
