Bulk RNA-Sequencing Data Analysis and Manuscript Preparation
This project will help you develop skills in computational biology and bioinformatics. In addition, the results obtained from the analysis may be inlcluded in a peer-reviewed publication. You will also develop skills in preparing a manuscript and going through the process of peer-review. I will provide the biological expertise and you will contribute computational know-how. This is a highly collaborative project. 1. Strong computer skills required (knowledge of Unix is sufficient, but other languages - Python, Pearl, R - will be useful) 2. Strong interest in computational biology 3. Ability to maintain regular communication with progress and troubleshooting. 4. Access to 500GB+ of unused hard drive space highly preferred.
Preparing a Review Article
This project will help you develop skills for preparing an article that reviews the current knowledge and challenges in a specific topic in corneal biology. You will learn the following: 1) how to access and use publication databases, (e.g., Pubmed), 2) create and maintain a bibliography (using Endnote), 3) how to read and interpret research articles. Successful completion of this project may earn you co-authorship on a peer-reviewed review article.
