My Research in a Nutshell
I am working as a bioinformatician in the group of Professor Andrew Baker since March 2016. I am interested in the identification and characterization of long non-coding RNAs involved in vascular biology and disease, using computational approached. I am currently analysing several ‘vascular’ RNA-seq data obtained in Professor Andrew Baker’s group, such as the differentiation of human embryonic stem cells to endothelial cells as well as clinical studies linked to plaque instability. I would like to identify the lncRNAs that are differentially expressed during development or in pathology. Then, I would like to characterise their function, by integrating them into a gene expression network.
