|Project||Short Description||Status||Domain Expert||Domain Expert Department||Methods Expert||Methods Student Funding||Methods Student Openings||Participating Students||Last Date Updated|
|Molecular Diagnosis of Pediatric Brain Disease||Our lab at the UCSD School of Medicine is looking for data scientists interested in learning about genomic data for analysis and algorithm design. We work at the interface of neurogenomics and computational analysis. One of our major projects is on computationally identifying mosaic genetic mutations, which are genetic changes in only a small percent of the DNA molecules, but that can have devastating consequences in the brain. Detecting these mutations is computationally very challenging, and is a active area of research.||Active||Joseph Gleeson||Neurosciences||no||
