Jelard Tampus Aquino

After working for a bioinformatics lab at the University of Wyoming, Jelard quickly became enamored with the potential of analyzing high-throughput ‘omics data and its applications to genomics research. He wanted to extend these skills of data mining and analyzing sequencing data to understand the genetic basis of adaptation. He aims to develop better bioinformatic algorithms for identifying genes under natural selection and joins us to increase his knowledge of population genomics and computational data analysis in preparation for graduate studies.
