Greg Gibson is a professor of Biology and Director of a new Center for Integrative Genomics at Georgia Tech. His group conducts systems genomics research, building on 15 years of quantitative genetic research in Drosophila, but now with a focus on human genomics. His group is primarily interested in the interaction between genotype and environment and the joint influences of these sources of variation on disease susceptibility and the evolution of disease. While his laboratory combines wet lab assays with statistical genetic and bioinformatics research, integrating transcriptomic studies of host and microbes/pathogens, with metabolomics and clinical profiles.

Genomic approaches to human genetics; variability of gene expression; systems biology of disease; theory of canalization and biological robustness.
