Huge congratulations to Chris Wilks, who successfully completed his Ph.D. defense on September 30th! Chris’ thesis, titled “Enabling Efficient and Streamlined Access to Large Scale Genomic Expression and Splicing Data”
covers his work on Snaptron (paper), the recount3 project, a recent project studying alignment errors in long-read RNA-seq datasets, and several other collaborative efforts (e.g. Rail-RNA, ASCOT, HUVEC cell proteomics, FC-R2).
Many congratulations to Chris, the world’s foremost RNA wrangler, analyzer, indexer, and question-answerer! We were privileged to work alongside him and we look forward to seeing the fruits of his future endeavors.
