Jeremy Davis-Turak

Jeremy earned his Ph.D. in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology in the lab of Alexander Hoffmann at UCSD, researching kinetic models of co-transcriptional splicing. In his studies he developed analyses for RNA-seq, nascent RNA-seq, GRO-seq and MNase-seq that were intimately linked with mechanistic models. Jeremy set up the Bioinformatics Core at the San Diego Center for Systems Biology, optimizing pipeline for RNA-seq and ChIP-seq. Jeremy also has extensive experience analyzing gene expression data from his time working in the Neurogenetics Laboratory at UCLA, where he became an expert in the analysis of Microarrays, Weighted Gene Coexpression Network Analysis, pathways analyses, gene set enrichment and motif analysis. His ambitious goal of enabling researchers without programming experience to ask quantitative questions led to the development of web portals featuring tools to query relational databases of expression data (microarray and sequencing) and perform on-the-fly computational analyses.

Pipelines & Data Integration

By Jeremy Davis-Turak on Feb 15, 2017 10:36:00 AM

Challenges and opportunities in the research setting. 

The emergence and mass utilization of high-throughput (HT) technologies, including sequencing technologies (genomics) and mass spectrometry (proteomics, metabolomics, lipids), has allowed geneticists, biologists, and biostatisticians to bridge the gap between genotype and phenotype on a massive scale. These new technologies have brought rapid advances in our understanding of cell biology, evolutionary history, microbial environments, and are increasingly providing new insights and applications towards clinical care and personalized medicine.

The threat to fish embryos and larvae development.

MIAMI-A research team led by scientists at the University of California, Riverside and the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science have found that ultraviolet light is changing the structure of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil components into something more toxic, further threatening numerous commercially and ecologically important fishes.
