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.
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 [...]
Congratulations to Nathan LaPierre on the acceptance of his abstract to the High Throughput Sequencing (HiTSeq) 2020 virtual meeting. Nathan will be presenting his talk, “Metalign: Efficient alignment-based metagenomic profiling via containment min hash,” on July 15, 2020. → Read our post on Nathan’s presentation of the same project at [...]
Congratulations to Jaque Brito, Mangul Lab postdoctoral scholar, Niko Darci-Maher, Mangul Lab undergraduate researcher, and Varuni Sarwal, Mangul Lab alumni, on the acceptance of their papers to the Bioinformatics Community Conference (BCC) 2020 virtual meeting. Niko will be presenting his short talk, “Secondary analysis of publicly available omics data across [...]
I have been in the lab since a junior year at UCLA, and I started out learning about the error correction benchmarking project. I began by learning about the general structure of the project and the functions of different scripts from generating results, evaluating them to summarizing them. Then I [...]
Mangul Lab welcomes to the team a new undergraduate researcher, Harman Singh! Harman is an Electrical Engineering sophomore at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, where he pursues his diverse interests in computer science, biology, and electrical engineering. Harman is studying to use mathematical models and machine learning to understand [...]
