Pers Group

We develop data-driven methodologies for understanding complex traits and in particular weight gain. Towards this aim, we primarily rely on human genetics data, large-scale single cell sequencing data, Danish population-wide registry data and machine learning techniques. 

We generate single-cell sequencing data in house at the Metabolism Center, work closely together with leading epidemiology groups at Statens Serum Institute, Denmark, and leading machine learners at the Technical Danish University. 

Our lab comprises computational scientists, computational biologists and experimental biologists, and we collaborate with internationally renowned researchers from Groningen University, The Netherlands,  Harvard University, USA and Oxford University, UK.
