Daphne Ezer has received an EPSRC Innovation Fellowship
Daphne Ezer has received an EPSRC Innovation Fellowship to design new methods to help biologists design experiments that learn the structure of gene networks, while minimising research time and costs. This will involve finding a good schedule for laboratory protocols, and dynamically adjusting the schedule in response to the new data generated by the experiments. Finding regulatory links between genes is one of the main research directions explored in both biomedicine and agriculture, and this project will help researchers in academia and industry perform this task more efficiently. This project will be performed in partnership with the Alan Turing Institute and Google Brain Genomics.
