Jenny Wu: What I’ve Learned in the Mangul Lab

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 publishes fifth paper presenting a novel method for profiling immunoglobulin (Ig) receptor repertoires from RNA-Seq

Mangul Lab at USC published a paper presenting ImReP – a novel computational tool that uses RNA-Seq data for rapid and accurate profiling of the immunoglobulin (Ig) repertoire. RNA-Seq data presents a unique opportunity to examine the adaptive immune system by profiling the both light and heavy chains that [...]

Mangul Lab submits preprint of a WGS-based structural variant callers benchmarking study

Mangul Lab at USC shared a new preprint which presents a benchmarking study of structural variant (SV) callers – computational tools for identifying genomic regions that have altered DNA and may be implicated in various diseases and disorders. Varuni Sarwal, alumnus of Serghei’s group at UCLA, is the first [...]

Mangul Lab publishes second paper – a benchmarking study of error correction methods

Today we celebrate the publication of our second peer-reviewed paper since Mangul Lab launched at USC Keith Mitchell, alumnus of Serghei’s group at UCLA, is the first author of  “Benchmarking of computational error-correction methods for next-generation sequencing data,” which is now available online. Jaque (our postdoc), Lana (our project [...]

Mangul Lab member Sei Chang reflects on summer undergraduate research experience

Working in a research lab can be an invaluable experience for undergrads — and immersive summer research experiences offer an ideal structure for students to acquire new skills and learn first-hand what it’s actually like to be a full-time researcher. Check out Mangul Lab undergraduate researcher Sei Chang’s recent blog [...]

UCLA undergraduate students and alumni join Mangul Lab at USC

We are excited to announce that a group of talented Bruins will be continuing their on-going computational genomics projects as inaugural members of Mangul Lab at USC. Serghei began mentoring these undergraduate students and former students in his previous role as a postdoctoral scholar in ZarLab at UCLA. Ram Ayyala [...]
