The McCoy lab uses computational and statistical approaches to investigate the evolution and function of human genomes. Specific research interests relate to understanding the functional and fitness consequences of genetic variation–including large-scale chromosome abnormalities. We are also interested in the evolutionary processes that generate and maintain functional genetic variation in human populations.
The lab is part of the Department of Biology and the Cell, Molecular, Developmental Biology, and Biophysics (CMDB) doctoral training program at Johns Hopkins University.
