NJIT Professor Finds Engineering Technique To Identify Disease-Causing Genes http://www.njit.edu/news/2008/2008-392.php http://www.njit.edu/news/2008/2008-392.phpTue, 28 Oct 2008 00:00:00 -0400 Scientists believe that complex diseases such as schizophrenia, major depression and cancer are not caused by one, but a multitude of dysfunctional genes. A novel computational biology method developed by a research team led by Ali Abdi, PhD, associate professor in NJIT's department of electrical and computer engineering, has found a way to uncover the critical genes responsible for disease development.
