The Hall Lab published a study in PLoS Genetics featuring the lab’s novel genetic encoding method: EDGE. Using EDGE, we identified a novel genetic interaction associated with age-related cataract that no other method identified. EDGE shows promise for identifying nonadditive genetic effects in biomedical data.
New publication from our collaboration with Dr. Jennie Noll (Human Development and Family Studies) on risk for obesity in women who have experienced sexual abuse:
Li J, Hall MA, Shalev I, Schreier H, González-Zarzar T, Marcovici I, Putnam F, Noll J. (2021) Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis dysregulation and risk for obesity in sexually abused females. Psychoneuroendocrinology: 129, 105254
Kristin Passero (Hall Lab PhD student) and Molly Hall organized the session “What about the environment? Leveraging multi-omic datasets to characterize the environment’s role in human health” for the Pacific Symposium on Biocomputing with environmental health research experts Dr. Chirag Patel (Harvard Medical School), Dr. Arjun Manrai (Harvard Medical School), Dr. Kimberly McAllister (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences), and Dr. Shefali Setia Verma (University of Pennsylvania).
The Hall Lab is presenting at the 2020 ASHG virtual conference. Please see the following posters:

Dr. Molly Hall named recipient of the Dr. Frances Keesler Graham Early Career Professorship. Read more here.
Molly Hall moderated ASHG 2019 Houston session: “What about the phenotype? Integrating electronic health records to drive discovery in precision health” with Anna Basile at New York Genome Center. The session included exciting talks from Dana Crawford (Case Western), Dokyoon Kim (UPenn), Marylyn Ritchie (UPenn), and Nicholas Tatonetti (Columbia).
