I have (sadly) departed the HolmesLab
in September 2007 for the Bioinformatics PhD program at UCSC.
My new web presence is here
- Screening 12 Drosophila species for structurally conserved RNAs.
- AJAX GBrowse
- Writing server-side Perl code to pre-render images, render on-the-fly, or some such combination.
- Coordinating the open-source development effort.
- Maintaining the BabylonCluster and being the sys admin of the lab in general.
Andrew Uzilov triumphantly joined the Holmes lab in September 2005, after surviving a brutal 3.5-year tour of duty as an undergraduate at the University of Rochester
, located in scenic upstate New York known for its lovely white winters and snowy, gentle 30+ mph breezes.
He escaped with a B.S. in Biochemistry, a B.A. in Computer Science, and only two toes lost to frostbite.
Previously, he has done research for the lab of Dr. David H. Mathews
in computational detection of non-coding RNA in genome sequences on the basis of folding free energy minimization.
Currently, he intends to do research at the Holmes lab with a similar goal - computational modeling of non-coding RNA - but using evolutionary/probabilistic methods. But even more currently, he is a system administrator and programmer for the lab, laying down the foundation for a bigger and brighter future.
