Center for Plant Cell Biology

Areas Of Expertise:

DNA Sequencing; Genomic Sequencing; Next Generation Sequencing; Genotyping; Gene Expression 

Research Summary:

I am interested in applying next-generation and capillary sequencing, microarray, and q-RT PCR technologies to study polymorphisms, gene and small RNA expression, transcriptional and translational regulation, and epigenetics. I have managed and provided genomic analysis services in both academic and private sector core facilities. Much of my research support has emphasized genetic mapping, genomic sequencing, and polymorphism discovery in various human cancers and diseases. I am also interested in introducing new technologies and software, improving processes, and establishing new applications in the core facility environment. Ultimately, I am drawn toward contributing to the elucidation of the mechanisms of development and aging.
