THE MANGUL LAB AT USC
We design, develop, and apply novel data-driven, computational approaches that accelerate the diffusion of genomics and biomedical data into translational research and education.
We are actively accepting applications from current USC undergraduate students to fill one position for the USC Undergraduate Research Associates Program in Mangul Lab for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021. The theme of our URAP internship for 2020-2021 is “Big Data Analysis Techniques (BDAT) for Scientific Reproducibility.” Please review the [...]
Mangul Lab welcomes to the team a new postdoctoral scholar, JungHyun (JJ) Jung! JJ joins Mangul Lab at USC as a new postdoctoral scholar and is co-advised by Dr. Serghei Mangul and Dr. Nicholas Mancuso. JJ received his Ph.D.in 2020 from Dongguk University in Korea. His research interests include integrative [...]
Congratulations to Mangul Lab postdoc Jaque Brito, whose highlight talk has been accepted for presentation at the 11th ACM Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, and Health Informatics (ACM BCB). Jaque will deliver her talk, “Benchmarking of computational error-correction methods for next-generation sequencing data,” at ACM-BCB 2020, which will be held [...]
Serghei will present a highlight talk titled, “Profiling immunoglobulin repertoires across multiple human tissues using RNA Sequencing,” at the ICML 2020 Workshop on Computational Biology. The talk will highlight a paper recently published in Nature Communications. ICML 2020 received 68 submissions for highlight talks, and only six highlighted talks were [...]
