    School of Medicine Research Computing is engaged in multiple collaborative projects in support of basic science research. Below is a list of some recent collaborations in this area. PHACTR1 and Smooth Muscle Cell Behavior Genome wide associate studies (GWAS) have revealed a number of loci that are associated with increased risk for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). SOMRC is helping analyze phenotypic data collected in vitro in relation to PHACTR1, which is one of the genes associated with CAD.
