Areas of Interest
Jedidiah is interested in applying computational and statistical methods to understand the mechanisms and consequences of germline mutations. By studying extremely rare variants that have arisen<100 generations ago, we can quantify the effect of local sequence context and other genomic features on the landscape of mutation and high resolution. This detailed mutation atlas can be integrated into many active areas of research, including population genetics models, calibration of pathogenicity scoring algorithms, and prioritization of casual variants in clinical sequencing.
