Terry Speed's Homepage

Terry Speed's research concerns the application of statistics to problems in genetics and molecular biology. These have provided many novel challenges of both an applied and a theoretical nature. His major interests within this area are in the mapping of genes in mice and humans, including disease genes and genes contributing to the variation of quantitative traits. The Human Genome Project was a stimulus for a number of the problems he has investigated with his students. Other areas of interest include the analysis of DNA and protein sequences, for example, finding genes or motifs in DNA sequence, and the analysis of microarray data. He is currently on the editorial board of the Journal of Computational Biology, JASA, Bernoulli and the Australian and New Zealand  Journal of Statistics.
