Results of a transcriptome study by Libertas Academia

Genomic research in the biology department utilizes bioinformatic analysis of genome and transcriptome datasets to address questions on the genetics of disease, population genetics, microbiome function, and the control of gene expression. This work is supported by access to the University's core genomics facilities and free access to Drexel’s Proteus Computing Cluster.

My research program is focused on understanding epigenetic mechanisms that govern higher order brain function via chromatin packaging in neurons.

Tali Gidalevitz
Associate Professor
PISB 418

My lab aims to understand the mechanisms that maintain healthy protein folding environment in the cell, and how they fail in neurodegenerative diseases and aging. We use genetic and live imaging approaches in a genetically tractable organism, C. elegans, as discovery tools, and apply the findings to mammalian systems.
