Kirk Wilhelmsen, PhD

Professor of Genetics

Core Faculty
Phone: 919-966-1373 | Office: 5093 Genetic Medicine Bldg.
Email: kirk_wilhelmsen@med.unc.edu | Website: http://kirkwilhelmsen.web.unc.edu/

Research Areas: Bioinformatics; Comparative Genomics & Molecular Evolution; Computational Genomics; Statistical & Population Genetics
Research Interests: Dr Wilhelmsen leads a lab group in the Dept. of Genetics and a Computational Group at RENCI (www.renci.org). The labs groups effort in human genetics is focused on behavior and neurodegeneration by annotation of the human genome using data intensive strategies. The lab group has developed several new analytic techniques. The lab is intensively engaged in the development of molecular techniques to study epigenetic phenomena and gene expression in complex populations of cells. The RENCI bioinformatics groups provide data intensive informatics approaches to support multidisciplinary research projects at the three triangle campuses. The current focus of this activity is to support genomics research. The group develops and maintains pipelines to support medical genomics analysis.
