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 [...]
