Project for Data Analysis and Bioinformatics-Savvy Students

Who: Students savvy in data analysis and bioinformatics

What: A six-month project at MUSC that would require data analysis with a bioinformatic lens, and then data interpretation, and would have potential for first authorship. Some funding available to support, would be looking to complete this project over the next 6 months. Project involves a proteomic and phospho-proteomic experiment with Harvard proteomic core of human liver biopsy samples collected from patients before and after treatment for hepatitis C. They have done a lot of work in this area characterizing transcriptional changes in the liver and how interferon signaling changes as a result of HCV treatment (in relation to treatment outcome), and now we are extending this to see what happens to proteome, as in this field the two don’t always correlate and there may be new insights. This is observational, correlative science. To do this project well after these first steps, the project will benefit from a deeper dive to extract as much meaning as possible

If you are interested in this project, please contact Lancie Affonso at affonsol@cofc.edu for more information.
