Research Interest

His research interests are in the discovery of disease genes for both monogenic and complex disorders, genotype-phenotype analysis, and in developing clinical grade genetic/ genomic tests for a variety of diseases using state-of-the-art technologies that include next-generation sequencing using capture-hyprid- or amplicon based techniques. Other interests include also discovering markers in cancer that that could be used as markers for tracking minimal residual disease
