Project Details


Why do some people get sicker than others?

Within close human groups, catching a disease or not and the severity of the disease mostly depends on one’s own genetic background. Dr. Yuval Itan wishes to unveil genetic predisposition to infectious diseases, individually and on a population-wide scale. He enquires to automate the identification of disease-favoring genes, to ultimately provide a wide array of computational tools for the diagnosis of genetic errors of the immune system, on the individual and population levels.
