Ph.D. students in the BISB graduate program and the Ph.D. program in CSE who are interested in doing a rotation or joining the lab are strongly encouraged to contact me. We have a number of research projects involving algorithm development for problems in genome analysis, disease genetics or analysis of high-throughput sequence data. Students are expected to have strong algorithms/statistics/genetics background and excellent programming skills. Masters students in CS who are interested in doing a thesis project are also welcome to contact me.

Information about research projects for UCSD graduate students is available here

Undergraduate students enrolled at UCSD and interested in doing research for 10-12 hours per week are welcome to contact me. Please send an email with your CV, information about coursework relevant to Bioinformatics (CSE 181, CSE/BENG 182, etc).
