IBC Transition scholar awarded Smithsonian Internship in Panama

Jelard Aquino, a senior physiology undergraduate has been working with the INBRE Bioinformatics Core on learning computational tools since January 2018.  In summer 2018, Jelard received funding from INBRE to engage in a meta-analysis project involving RNAseq data from blister rust infected white pine species.

Jelard was recently awarded a 3 month internship to work at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama.  He will be joining a vibrant community of researchers engaged in understanding speciation genomics of new world butterflies of genus Heliconius.  He will be working with whole genome sequencing data and will leverage the data analysis skills he acquired during his stint with the IBC.  We wish him all the best in this exciting endeavor.

You have reached the official site of the INBRE Bioinformatics Core at the University of Wyoming. The Core currently consists of our director – Dr Naomi Ward and two service scientists, Dr. Nicolas Blouin and Dr. Vikram Chhatre.

The Core’s mandate is to foster bioinformatics activities in the state of Wyoming. In this endeavor, we work at multiple institutions such as Wyoming community colleges and the UW-Laramie and Casper campuses.

We offer a broad range of services to the Wyoming students and researchers in biomedical and biological sciences disciplines. This includes formal teaching, providing specific trainings for data analytical procedures and participating in full-fledged research collaborations with faculty throughout the state.

We are physically present in Molecular Biology department (east wing of the ANSC building) in rooms 228 and 230. The easiest way to get in touch with us is by email or phone. Contact information is listed on our individual introductory pages.

IBC has a new mailing list.  All future announcement will be sent only through this email list.  Please join: Google Groups: WYO-IBC
