My background: I'm a postdoc in George Church's lab, which specializes in genomics and biotechnology. I currently work with the Personal Genome Project, in particular with whole genome interpretation. My past work has focused on using high throughput sequencing to profile DNA methylation in mammals.

Opinions[edit]

Articles I've worked on[edit]

Some articles I've done major rewriting on:

  • Featured article Genetics - (5/27/07) at the moment the page is almost entirely content I added
(before - what the page was like before I started)
  • 3/13/08 - Good Article
  • 3/25/08 - Featured Article

Articles I made:

  • PCR optimization - I made this because I wanted to move optimization trivia away from the main PCR article
  • Stop codon - Made this page to cover material about amber & ochre mutations and suppressors
  • Acacia drepanolobium - The whistling thorn acacia, created the article after reading a cover-story article about it and symbiotic ants in Science.
  • Double-flowered - the double flower phenotype, earliest documented floral mutation and popular in many cultivated flowers

Stubs I made:
