Problem: The team I’ve join work on rare hereditary diseases of the eye. Each patient have one unique mutation (two in recessive case), but there is about 200 genes that could cause close diseases. The challenge is to find which gene is mutated for each patient.

Solution: Medical doctors make clinical diagnosis of families and team perform SNP-chips on individuals. I’ve made a software that manage data, perform linkage analyses, and prioritize candidates regions.
