Karen Miga, Ph.D.

Assistant Research ScientistUniversity of California, Santa Cruz Genomics Institute

Dr. Miga is a satellite DNA biologist based out of UC Santa Cruz. Her research program combines innovative computational and experimental approaches to produce the high- resolution sequence maps of human centromeric and pericentromeric DNAs. In doing so, she is uncovering a new source of genetic and epigenetic variation in the human population, which is useful to investigate novel associations between genotype and phenotype of inherited traits and disease.
