Andres Ruiz Linares Lab




I am interested in the analysis of human genetic diversity both from a population history perspective and in terms of identifying genes responsible for phenotypic varition in the population. I have a major focus on populations from the American continent, both Native Americans as well those established subsequent to the European colonial expansion into the region. The remarkable history of this continent offers unique opportunities for examining fundamental question about human evolution and the genetic basis of human phenotypic variation.

I am currently the Editor-in-Chief of the Annals of Human Genetics, co-organize UCL's MSc on the Genetics of Human Disease and chair CANDELA (Consortium for the Analysis of the Diversity and Evolution of Latin America)
