Michael Linderman (Computer Science) has received funding from the Ichan School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai to continue his participation with a research project funded by the National Institutes of Health. Linderman will develop software for identifying potentially disease-causing structural, genetic variants from whole genome sequencing data in children with congenital heart defects (CHD) and associated neuro-developmental disorders. CHDs are a leading cause of infant mortality in the United States.
