In graduate school I learned about a new class of small RNAs derived from tRNAs known as tRFs. I was told that working on them would be risky and there weren't other people working on them. After looking through the literature I decided the best approach would be to look at PAR-CLIP and CLASH data to investigate if they had similar properties to miRNAs. I taught myself how to use the university's computing cluster and how to download and analyze sequencing data. My results led to a F31 grant and publication in my first year in graduate school.
I consider myself a world leader in small RNA biology and am interested in applying machine learning to small RNA datasets.
CDF plots and mislabeled samples
Posted March 21st, 2016 in Tools
In this post I provide code for making CDF plots with Python and explain how this can be used to check if RNAi microarray samples have been mislabeled.
