Svetlana has received her PhD in Bioinformatics from Lomonosov Moscow State University studying RNA secondary structures. As a postdoctoral fellow, Svetlana has been working on the contribution of clonal monoallelic expression to expression variation in humans. Ourside the lab, Svetlana enjoys running, doing yoga and traveling.
Saumya received her PhD in Genetics and Genomics from Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, India studying complex genetic traits. As a postdoctoral fellow, Saumya has been working on understanding the role of monoallelic expression in phenotypic diversity. Outside the lab, Saumya enjoys updating her travelogue while enjoying a good cuppa coffee. For things she finds interesting, check out @tweetySaumya
Denis received his M.Sc in Biology from Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada studying the genetic basis of nonself recognition in N. crassa. As a technician, Denis has been working on the development of high throughput genetic screens aimed to investigate the maintenance of monoallelic expression within clonal cell populations. Outside of the lab, Denis enjoys playing music, playing ice hockey and traveling.
Visiting Postdoctoral Fellow
As a Sandwich student, Rong has received both her M.D. from Tianjin medical school in China and Ph.D. from University of Groningen in the Netherlands, which focus on the biomarker identification and validation based on genome-wide analysis on cervical cancer.
As a postdoctoral fellow, Rong has been working on the mechanism of clonal monoallelic expression using gene edition tools.
Outside the lab, Rong enjoys the novelty and interesting stuff related to languages, cultures and cooking cuisine.
