Current Work


Research Adviser: Pam Ryan, Truman State University
Project: Statistical Analysis of Genetic Diversity


1. Research organisms/proteins for sequences to test
2. Look over simulation code
3. Reproduce current data/figures for new protein
4. Make modifications to code for more biological accurate definitions of syn and non and have them verified
5. run the previous and new system under new rules and compare
