    Current Research and Scholarly Interests We are using Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Human to conduct whole genome analysis projects. The yeast genome sequence has approximately 6,000 genes. We have made a set of haploid and diploid strains (21,000) containing a complete deletion of each gene. In order to facilitate whole genome analysis each deletion is molecularly tagged with a unique 20-mer DNA sequence. This sequence acts as a molecular bar code and makes it easy to identify the presence of each deletion.

    Bio I'm a Senior Biocuration Scientist in the Department of Genetics at Stanford University, currently working with the Saccharomyces Genome Database in the laboratory of Dr. J. Michael Cherry. I received my A.B. in Botany at UC Berkeley, and my Ph.D. in Biological Chemistry at Harvard University, where I studied yeast telomeres in the laboratory of Dr. Jack Szostak. My recent bench research has focused on using whole-genome DNA and RNA sequencing, ChIP-Seq, array-CGH, and other ?omics? methods to broadly explore evolution in yeast, and particularly the genome structures and genome evolution of industrial yeasts (lager, ale, wine, ethanol, bread).
