Yun Li, PhD

Dr. Yun Li (Professor, Department of Genetics) is a co-corresponding author with Dr. Hongtu Zu (Professor, Department of Biostatistics) of the paper titled “Transcriptome-wide association analysis of brain structures yields insights into pleiotropy with complex neuropsychiatric traits” that was published on May 17, 2021 in Nature Communications.

The paper illustrates that transcriptome-wide association studies (TWAS) can be a powerful supplement to traditional GWAS in imaging genetics studies for gene discovery-validation, genetic co-architecture analysis, and polygenic risk prediction.
