Parithi Balachandran, MS
Application Computational Scientist
Designs pipelines and develops tools to discover structural variations facilitated by Transposable Elements to better understand the potential mechanisms of their formation.
Investigating the mechanisms and consequences of genomic rearrangements with a focus on repetitive elements.
Research Administrative Assistant
Provides administrative support to Dr. Ching Lau, Dr. Sheng Li, and Dr. Christine Beck along with their scientific staff and lab members.
Investigates the impact of structural variants in diverse genomes with a focus on transposable elements in early development.
Interested in the impact of structural variants and transposable elements on gene regulation
Investigating the germline mutation rate and segmental duplication-mediated rearrangement variation between diverse strains of inbred mice.
I am investigating de novo structural variation in collaborative cross progeny to examine the mechanisms of mutation formation. Additionally, I am interested in the consequences of de novo mutations to the phenotypes and genomic evolution of closely related inbred mouse strains.
