Berkeley statisticians help find function of "junk" DNA in human genome

Special Event: News and Events | September 5 |  Bethesda, Md.


Department of Statistics


Berkeley statisticians played a key role in the large ENCODE consortium that determined the function of what was thought to be "junk" DNA in the human genome. Led by Peter Bickel, the statisticians provided several of the tools biologists needed to uncover the functional roles of DNA outside protein coding genes.
