I am responsible for the oversight and direction of the Next Generation Sequencing projects using the Illumina HiSeq 3000 sequencer in the Thomson Regenerative Biology Unit. This next generation technology opens up research possibilities focused on studying gene expression and transcriptional regulation in embryonic stem cells and their differentiated derivatives.
