About LDGH

The Laboratory of Human Genetic Diversity (LDGH)’s research integrates concepts and tools of population genetics, genetic epidemiology, bioinformatics and functional genetics. The overarching objective is to enhance our understanding of evolution and the genetic bases of complex traits and diseases, with an emphasis on immune-related genes and their influence on infection and cancer. We have a particular interest in native and admixed populations of Latin America in the context of global human genomic diversity.

We are located at the Department of Biology of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (Brazil).
