DuPont Crop Genetics
Understanding genetic interactions: Epistasis
Ms. Li will present an overview of epistasis as an important
interacting component of the genetic architecture of complex traits.
Several statistical models have been developed in uncovering
genotype-phenotype associations. She will review a few of these
models, provide an example in a practical application and conclude
with some limitations and difficulties present in modeling variation
in genetic background that causes variation in allelic effects.
Ms. Li is a biostatistician in DuPont Crop Genetics. She received
her Masters of Science degree in biostatistics at the University of
Michigan where she studied association mapping in type II diabetes.
At DuPont, she is involved in various statistical analyses such as
association mapping and phenotypic screens.
