Research Program:

Dr. Browning's research is focused on the development of statistical and computational methods for analysis of large-scale genetic data from microarray genotyping and next-generation sequencing. These genetic data sets present computational and analytical challenges due to their size, and due to the complex patterns of inter-marker correlation in the data. Carefully engineered algorithms and software are necessary to extract the full information from these rich data sets.

Selected Software:

Beagle - genotype imputation, estimation, and phasing, and identity-by-descent segment detection

Beagle Utilities - a collection of utility programs for manipulating large data files

IBDNe - estimation of historical effective population size

IBDseq - identity-by-descent segment detection for whole-genome sequence data

SEQERR - genotype error rate estimation for whole-genome sequence data

A complete list of my software is available on my faculty website.
