We integrate knowledge from different fields (biology, genetics, neuroimaging, bioinformatics) and use and develop statistical tools to analyze and understand genomic data for complex traits.

Individual genes do not play a major role in the development of antisocial behaviour. The combined effect of all genes, on the other hand, can explain some of the differences in antisocial behaviour. This is the conclusion of an international research effort among more than 25,000 participants, led by researchers Jorim Tielbeek, Arne Popma, Tinca Polderman and Danielle Posthuma of VUmc and VU, CNCR-CTG. The research was published October 4, 2017 in JAMA Psychiatry.
