Identifying the causes of germline mutation

We compare genome sequences from different species to study the relative importance of different processes underlying mutations in DNA and to investigate how these are related to differences in the germlines of males and females. The project is providing knowledge essential for understanding the factors that contribute to the wide range of debilitating inherited conditions and for devising effective preventative and diagnostic strategies.
