Raman Akinyanju Lawal, Ph.D.

Computational Scientist

Using cutting-edge sequencing technologies to support new biological discoveries. Interested in Bioinformatics, Pipeline Development, Long and Short Read Sequences, Computational Biology, Population and Evolutionary Genetics.

Trained as a population and evolutionary geneticist, I have extensive experience as a bioinformatician developing research hypotheses and computational pipelines to address the origin and the influence of genetic mutation on an observed trait. The output of my research has broader implications for biomedical advancement and biodiversity.

Currently, I work with different sequencing technologies including long and short reads to develop computational pipelines or maintain existing tools for wider JAX communities. Involved in data mining and exploration to detect a pattern providing new biological insights. Provide scientific services including data quality control, platform evaluation, and troubleshooting.
