Audrey E. Hendricks, Associate Professor of Statistics in the Department of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, along with 10 student authors published, “Summix: A method for detecting and adjusting for population structure in genetic summary data,” this month in the American Journal of Human Genetics.  Many of these students received funding through the EUReCA! program. Summix is an important method to increase the utility and equity of large genetic databases for people of all ancestries. Many of the undergraduate students on this project started on the research when they were undergraduates are now in or will be in graduate programs.
