How to find us dr. P.J. van der Most

Research interests

Peter van der Most is a post-doc researcher at the unit of Genetic Epidemiology & Bioinformatics. He graduated in 2008 at the University of Groningen (bachelor in Life Science & Technology; master in Behavioural & Cognitive Neuroscience), and is interested in the intersection of biology, medicine and technology. Following graduation, he worked for two years at the department of Behavioural Biology with Prof. Simon Verhulst. There he used meta-analysis to study trade-offs between growth and immunity, and between quality and quantity of offspring in birds. Subsequently Peter van der Most wrote his PhD thesis on novel statistical methods and the development of quality-control tools for (epi-)genome-wide analysis at the unit of Genetic Epidemiology with Prof. Harold Snieder.
