ERC Advanced grant awarded to professor Jukka Corander

Wed, 10.05.2017

HIIT group leader, professor Jukka Corander has received the ERC Advanced grant funding for 2017-2022. His SCARABEE project is located at University of Oslo, but it involves a considerable collaboration with HIIT scientists at both Aalto University and University of Helsinki. SCARABEE will develop new computational inference methods for evolutionary epidemiology, including genome-wide epistasis, GWAS, population genomics and transmission dynamics. Applications to large-scale bacterial genomics aim at providing systems biological understanding about evolution of survival, virulence and resistance determinants. This information may in future aid in developing better ways to battle infectious diseases.
