Welcome to the Center for Integrative Genomics at Georgia Tech. We are a virtual affiliation of researchers interested in the application of genome-wide research strategies to diverse biological themes. In our center we – conduct quantitative genetic analysis of genomes, transcriptomes, proteomes, metabolomes, and phenomes; foster partnerships within the School of Biology, across Georgia Tech, and with collaborators in the Atlanta region; and study the complex interaction between genes, culture, and the environment in an evolutionary context.


Biomedical Genomics and Evolution JC

In this bi-weekly Population Genetics and Predictive Health Journal Club, we discuss papers related to all aspects of complex human genetics.

“50,000 years of Evolutionary History of India: Insights from ∼2,700 Whole Genome Sequences”



These monthly advanced research seminars feature two presentations by graduate students and postdocs. Although aimed directly to graduate students and postdocs, the community is invited to attend.  

“Investigating inversions in Lake Malawi cichlids for a role in speciation and phenotypic variation”
