Description: The human genome project has provided two significant challenges. First, how to identify sites of variation in the human genome which make significant contributions to human disease. Second, as these sites of variation are identified, to develop effective intervention strategies based on this knowledge to improve human health. I will discuss two specific lines of research which relate to these challenges. I will discuss our efforts to move from the identification of the Huntington's Disease gene towards the identification of small molecules which can ameliorate or block its pathological effects. I will then discuss strategies for the identification of genes for complex human genetic traits focused on the ways in which genome-wide SNP and haplotype analysis can achieve maximum power.
