Single cell genomics:  tools for computational analysis with application to innate immune response to HIV-1 infection

Nir Yosef is Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science and a member of the Center for Computational Biology at UC Berkeley. The overarching goal of his group’s research is to utilize high-throughput genomic data sets, mostly based on DNA sequencing, in order to build models that explain how gene expression is regulated.  They have special interest in immune cells, covering various aspects of their biology, such as their differentiation, stability / plasticity, and response to acute stimulation.
