  • Hello from Davis, CA

    Hi all,
    My name is Erick Loomis and I'm a Genetics grad student at UC Davis. I'm a long time creeper and relatively new poster here. I'm a wet-lab molecular biologist by training, but I'm also a huge nerd for DNA sequence. I currently study the trinucleotide repeat expansion that causes Fragile X Syndrome, and that has limited the amount of sequencing I could do prior to the next-next-generation long-read sequencers. I've had a lot of success with the PacBio RS for long repetitive sequences, but I'm also a big fan in general of DNA sequence as a readout for molecular experiments. In my spare time, I like to clumsily install bioinformatics packages on my macbook by blindly using "configure, make, sudo make install". I'm comfortable and somewhat competent with the unix shell and perl, and somewhat less so, for now, python and R. I'm exceedingly grateful for the SEQanswers community and especially the patience of programmers in dealing with my questions about why the program they gave me for free doesn't do exactly the thing I want it to on the first try.

    Thanks,
    Erick

    Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
    by seqadmin




    The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

    Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
    by seqadmin


    In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
