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.
- New and improved version of our @biorxivpreprint, in which we justify classifying genes as not/expressed based on transcript abundance estimates. tl;dr genes with < 1-2 transcripts per million are not expressed. Short 🧵summarizes why... t.co/Q1SPWqBPtx
- Join us @YalePsych and @YaleGenetics! We are hiring multiple postdocs! The scope of currently funded projects is broad, and scientists from any discipline with training or interest in stem cell models and neurogenomics are welcome to apply. t.co/mFwDPqyjnG
- It's day 3 of #INSAR2021! (Man, I still want to type INSAR2020) My latest: Using data from more than 750k people, @RyanLCollins13 and colleagues created scores for 17k genes that could help docs, families, etc., interpret genetic results about autism t.co/a8gTs3dN9f
