Research Projects in The Churchill Group:
As a Bioinformatics Analyst, I provide statistical and computational support to the Center for Genome Dynamics and the Nathan Shock Aging Center. I have experience in the entire process of mouse research including experiment design, mouse handling, laboratory bench work, data analysis and publication.
Currently, I provide statistical support for the Aging Center, primarily in the form of QTL analysis of several crosses and strain surveys. In the Center for Genome Dynamics, we are constructing a Hidden Markov Model to genotype the Diversity Outcross mice. I will be studying the properties of the Diversity Outcross mice and will be the primary person involved in mapping traits for several projects. I am also interested in multi-strain gene expression studies and will be analyzing a data set that measured expression in multiple tissue across multiple strains.
