I am excited to announce that I will be starting my lab in Summer 2018 at The University of Colorado Boulder in the Department of Computer Science and the BioFrontiers Institute. It is bittersweet to leave the Quinlan lab after MANY years (~8), but it is time. Aaron has been a fantastic mentor, and I suggest that anyone interested in method development and not interested in living the beautiful Boulder Colorado and working in a beautiful new BioFrontiers building (see below) should consider joining his lab.
My lab will focus on developing methods for:
- analyzing large-scale genome datasets (e.g., GQT and GIGGLE)
- structural variant analysis (e.g., LUMPY)
- supporting rare disease research and diagnosis
I will be hiring postdocs, programmers, and grad students. If you are interested, please contact me: ryan at layerlab dot org.
