Project Start Date: Winter 2014
Project Title: Analysis of Large-Scale Epigenomic Data Sets
Project Contact: Jason Ernst firstname.lastname@example.org
Advances in sequencing technology has enabled unprecedented ability to experimentally map genome-wide epigenetic features such as histone modifications, DNA methylation, and regions of open chromatin in a large number of cell types and conditions. Potential projects include analysis and/or method development in the context of leveraging large-scale epigenomic datasets to address problems related to stem cell reprogramming, cancer progression, and neuropsychiatric diseases.
Required Experience: Experience with some programming language and knowledge of basic statistics and probability.
Possibility of Funding: Yes
