Sarah Kassem

Sarah is working on bioinformatically annotating variable number tandem repeat (VNTR) copy number variation in mucin genes across different primate species. Her efforts are leading to understanding how these mucus-making genes evolve in the primate lineage. In parallel, Sarah is conducting ddPCR experiments to estimate copy numbers of certain genes, and is also training in Oxford Nanopore long-read sequencing techniques.
