Ryan is a Ph.D candidate in the Bioinformatics and Integrative Genomics (BIG) program at Harvard Medical School, and is a member of the Talkowski lab at Massachusetts General Hospital and The Broad Institute. He is supported by an award from the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP) through the National Science Foundation (NSF).
His research focuses on the structure of the human genome, and how changes to genome structure contribute to human diversity and disease. He has led and contributed to numerous large-scale sequencing studies, such as the Genome Aggregation Database (gnomAD), one of the most widely adopted reference catalogs of human genetic variation in the world.
- We again look for new tenure-track faculty in computational biology at CMU @SCSatCMU @CMUCompBio. Apply by Dec 18, 2020. CMU School of Computer Science has a vibrant environment and fantastic students. Come join us! t.co/oUEsIBfvCM
- Could genome sequencing become a first tier test for children with unexplained medical complexity? New @JAMANetworkOpen promising results. t.co/JhQmWTKvlP
- The Telomere-to-Telomere consortium is proud to announce our v1.0 release of a complete human genome. When @khmiga asked me to team up on this a few years ago, I wasn't sure it would be possible. Now down to just 5 gaps. What a journey! Read more here t.co/OrtRB0eSpc t.co/QzjXI0vIJQ
- @endre_sebestyen @medrxivpreprint @biorxivpreprint If you submit to one, we will automatically transfer to the other if it’s more appropriate. Rule of thumb: human data with cases/controls and inferences about disease causality/prognosis -> medRxiv. Description of basic biology/pathology -> bioRxiv.
