Dr. Tamim Shaikh. Genome-wide Copy Number Variations in a Large Cohort of Bantu African Children

Tamim Shaikh
Family-based studies have indicated that genetic factors play a significant role in facial shape and appearance. However, very little is known about the genes that underlie normal facial development and account for inter-individual variability. In an ongoing study to identify the genetic determinants underlying facial shape variation, >3400 Bantu Africans were photographed using 3D morphometric cameras to obtain digitized facial scans and genotyped using high-content genotyping microarrays. The precise facial measurements obtained from 3D facial...
