from my http://about.me/wadunn (<--go there for my github etc)
I use bioinformatics to study gene regulation and expression at the transcriptome level. I currently work in mosquitoes. Specifically, I use RNA-seq and microarray technology to study how bloodfeeding affects gene expression in mosquitoes, and look for over represented patterns in regulatory DNA.
I use python, R, shell scripting and manage a local Galaxy instance to manage the lab's bioinformatics and next-generation sequencing analysis needs.
The long term goal of my current lab is to produce genetically modified mosquitoes that do not transmit Malaria or Dengue Fever that will spread this trait swiftly through local mosquito populations.
