I am a trained bioinformaticist and geneticist. A major focus of my lab is the utilization and analysis of next-generation sequencing technology. We have identified two novel disease-causing genes to date, and are currently pursing validation in several additional families.
I have a broad background in bioinformatics, with specific training and expertise in genetics and genomics. My PhD research focused on the large-scale gene discovery and mapping project in rat. Since then, my research projects have focused on genome-scale analysis of sequences and expression data
