Analysis of Allele Specific Expression using RNA-seq DataProject
Project Start Date: Winter 2016
Recently developed sequencing technologies allow for the identification of a higher level of expression of one copy of a chromosome compared to the other copy. This imbalance suggests the presence of functional variants which affect expression in the neighborhood of the gene. This project will develop methods for measuring allele specific expression using short read sequencing technologies.
Required Experience: Experience with some programming language (C,C++, Java etc.), some background knowledge of high throughput sequencing.
